Sioux Center Municipal Utilities natural gas customers may request that the city gas department install an excess flow valve (EFV) on the gas service to their property.
EFV’s are mechanical shut-off devices that can be installed in the gas pipe and are designed to stop the flow of gas if the service line is broken. This reduces the risk of natural gas fire, explosion, injury, and/or property damage. EFV’s have been installed on each new service line in Sioux Center since 2009.
Please contact the city if you are interested or have questions. EFV installation costs will be the customer’s responsibility.
