Gas Department

The City of Tipton purchases natural gas from the Northern Natural Gas Pipeline and Northern transports the gas and the city takes ownership at a transfer point in Kansas and pays for pipeline transportation from that point to the border station north of town. From there the gas enters the city's distribution system, pressures are reduced and meters measure the gas used at the border station and at each residential and commercial meter. The city also assumes a great deal of expense maintaining the gas distribution lines and meters throughout the city and pays for the natural gas itself. The Tipton Gas Department can be contacted at 563-886-6187 or email.
