Rates & Fees

York County Natural Gas Authority will extend service lines up to 300 feet provided central heating system (gas pack or central furnace) and water heat is installed.

If the service line requires directional borings, creek, bridge or railroad crossings, or any other obstacle, then it is not considered a normal service line and may require aid-in-construction fees. A service line request may be denied if these obstacles prove to be physically or financially prohibitive.

For any request beyond 300 feet, an aid-in-construction fee will be charged.
