Requirements: For gas supplies of 2000 cubic feet per hour (CFH) (944 L/min) or more at pressures in excess of 1/2 psig (3.45 kPa), a rotary or turbine gas meter may be installed on the up stream side of the gas regulator, provided all applicable requirements of RS 16 are complied with.
Such installations shall be performed only when required due to a practical difficulty regarding placement of the gas meter downstream of the regulator and shall be outdoors.
The "meter piping" shall be deemed to extend up to the outlet of the regulator, and shall be tested, inspected, maintained and repaired by the utility company.
The determination that a practical difficulty exists shall be requested by the utility in a letter to the Borough Commissioner. The utility's sketches of the meter room and equipment shall accompany the letter. The Borough Commissioner shall forward the request to the Borough Chief Plumbing Inspector for determination.
