Atmos Energy is here to help your school operate in a safe and dependable manner. Since 2004, the State of Texas has required all public, charter and accredited private schools to have their natural gas piping systems tested for leaks every two years.
According to state law, each school facility must provide documentation proving that their natural gas piping passed inspection by a licensed plumber, qualified school employee or other approved person. If a school does not provide documentation that proves their facility passed inspection prior to the start of the school year, then natural gas service to the school facility will be interrupted until such inspection is provided.
Atmos Energy now uses an online School Gas Pipe Testing portal for the school or district to enter their testing data. Every spring, Atmos Energy will email to appropriate school personnel a School Gas Pipe Testing information packet to every public, charter and accredited private school that requires testing that year. The email contains the school’s portal login information, instructions for using the portal and entering the testing data. We'll also provide the official Railroad Commission of Texas' testing regulations from the Texas Administrative Code. Instructions for using the portal and the TRRC testing regulations are listed below.
