    Understood. If it were bonded on the line side of the meter it would be considered a grounding electrode. Do you believe that the bonding of the gas line would have prevented the perferration of...

    You should also check with the POCO in the area you are working in. They will often allow you to raise the meter height, but not sure how high though.
