How do I know where a pipeline is located?

IMPORTANT FACTS ABOUT PIPELINE MARKERS AND RIGHT-OF-WAY:

Pipeline right-of-way

  • Markers show an approximate location, not an exact location.
  • Signs on the markers contain product information, name of the pipeline company and a telephone number where representatives can always be reached.
  • Since erosion can affect pipeline depth, markers do not indicate how deep the pipeline is buried or how many pipelines are present.
  • Pipelines do not necessarily follow a straight line between the markers.

In case of a pipeline emergency, call 1-888-859-7291 IMMEDIATELY!

Call this 24-hour number immediately even if a small pipeline nick or scratch has occurred. These small events could result in a rupture now or in the near future and it should be checked by our pipeline technicians.
