|Natural Gas Lines and Responsibilities
The City of Trinidad owns and operates the Natural Gas Distribution System which
began operations in 1951. Our job is to ensure the safe and reliable delivery of natural gas to your home or business. We operate and maintain an extensive network of pipeline, which serves approximately 4,500 customers, and includes more than 80 miles of natural gas pipeline beneath our city’s streets, sidewalks, alleys and yards.
Customer safety is our top priority, especially when it comes to keeping your home or business safe from the potential dangers of natural gas.
As required by federal regulations, we perform routine leak and corrosion inspections every year. From the inspections, we find leaks that otherwise may have gone unnoticed.
Access to your property
As stated in the City of Trinidad’s Gas Tariff the customer will provide access to the customer’s premises at all reasonable times for authorized employees of the City for any purpose incidental to the supplying of natural gas service.
Here are some ways you can identify our gas employees.
If you are still concerned about the validity of the visit, call 719-680-1424 or 719- 846-9843 and we will confirm it.

Digging into an underground gas pipeline or service line can create an explosion that can potentially endanger both person and property.
Underground pipelines are not always located in the street. So weather you are grading, installing a fence, or planting a tree, the City of Trinidad Gas Department encourages you to make a call to the Utility Notification Center of Colorado at 8-1-1 two days before you plan to dig, not including the day of the call, to arrange to have all underground utilities located or online by visiting their site.
