Pipeline Safety Connects Us All

Close to 2.7 million miles of pipelines crisscross our nation. Whether we live close to a pipeline or just benefit from the energy products they deliver, each of us is a pipeline safety stakeholder. Our actions can impact pipeline safety.

We may be near pipelines everyday but not be aware of their existence. However, pipeline operators must advise affected stakeholders on how to live and work safely near pipelines, including a pipeline’s location, the use of a one-call notification system prior to excavation, and how to recognize, respond to, and report pipeline emergencies.
