Sioux Falls, SD – South Dakota is knee-deep or more in snow and NorthWestern Energy reminds customers to make sure natural gas meters, as well as furnace and appliance vents, are free from snow and ice. Blocked vents could result in a loss of heat or buildup of deadly carbon monoxide in homes and other structures. Some furnace vents may be located on roofs.

We also encourage customers to clear snow away gently from natural gas meters. This will help prevent a natural gas regulator from freezing over, which would interrupt the normal flow of natural gas into a home or building.

If you have any questions, call the NorthWestern Energy South Dakota and Montana Customer Service line, 800-245-6977.

At 5 a.m. Monday. Feb. 25, the National Weather Service reported the following snow on the ground totals: Aberdeen, 17 inches; Huron, 9 inches; Brookings, 12 inches; Mitchell, 13 inches.
