Excess Flow Valve Option

At South Jersey Gas, your safety is our priority. As part of our commitment to provide safe, reliable and affordable natural gas service, you have the option to install an Excess Flow Valve. 
An Excess Flow Valve (EFV) is a mechanical safety device designed to automatically shut off the flow of natural gas in the event of a service line break or excavation damage. Since 1999, South Jersey Gas has installed EFVs on all qualifying new and replacement service lines. Therefore, many of our service lines already have EFVs.
If technically and operationally feasible, South Jersey Gas can install an EFV on an existing service line. The cost can range from $1,500 to $5,000, or more, depending on the time, labor and permitting required for installation/replacement.

Apply for an EFV  

If you would like to request installation of an EFV on your existing residential or commercial service line, please complete the online form. Once requested, South Jersey Gas will determine whether your service line already has an EFV or will be adding an EFV in the future as part of our normal service line replacement process. Where needed, individual estimates will be provided, and if scheduled for installation, must be paid in advance of installation
