Grounding bushings for EMT


Can anyone tell me if a grounding bushing is required on both ends of EMT conduit between a meter base and the panel? It seems to me that only one should be needed but I've read on here that one is needed on both ends?? Doesn't make sense to me. Can anyone clarify? (My install is in the great white north here)

I don't know the answer but your logic seems sound. Thing is, that's probably covered by local code so you'd probably do well to check with your city inspector(s).

Just the one inside the panel is all you need

Thanks Darren, thats what I thought. The meter base is bonded with the neutral connection right?

On the topic of grounding, I need to ground my gas line with this new panel install. Can I run the ground from the gas line to the water line connection, and then run one wire from there to the panel, or do they have to be seperate runs? My water line is halfway from the panel to the gas line.

Yes, you can run 1 continuous wire to bond both the gas and water piping.

Is it ok to splice together at the water line? There is an existing wire from the water pipe, but I have to add one from the gas line to pass inspection.
