Fall River Propane is advising property owners who use propane fuel to clear snow away from regulators.
The company says the large amount of high-country snow this year has created a significant number of damaged propane regulators. That damage can cause a propane leak that could result in an explosion.
Fall River’s photo (above) shows a green-colored regulator. It had so much snow on it that the weight ripped the regulator off the foundation of the home at the brass connection. The company said that damage could have easily resulted in a gas leak.
