State Law Requires Pipes to be Tested Every Two Years
The Texas Legislature, through the School Piping Safety Act, requires that all customer-owned gas piping in schools (public, private and charter) be leak tested every two years.  Every school district (or school) is required to notify its natural gas supplier, CPS Energy, that satisfactory pressure tests have been performed.

As a natural gas supplier, the law requires CPS Energy to terminate service to facilities if the required information is not in our possession before the due date.  

The information supplied to CPS Energy under the law must be provided within Railroad Commission of Texas Forms PS-86A and PS-86B.  These forms must be filled out in their entirety.
