In response to Re: Grounding of pipes
Normally the electric service is grounded to the water line at the point where it enters the building and the gas lines are bonded to the electical panel either with the same wire or a separate ground connection.

: I am repiping my house with copper and noticed that each gas appliance (water heater and furnace) is grounded to the water line. I thought that creating multiple connections to ground could create problems (ground loop). What is the best thing to do? And is it OK to connect the galvanized gas pipes to the copper pipes or will that create corrosion problems?
