Major pipelines near you: Delivering on safe, reliable service
Whether you use natural gas at home or work, pipelines are needed to deliver it to you safely and reliably.
Ongoing work helps prevent problems
Our crews routinely patrol, test, repair and replace pipelines, and undergo ongoing training and testing. Our goal is to identify and resolve potential problems to help prevent major problems. These preventive actions include:
- Managing a rigorous pipeline integrity safety program in highly populated areas.
- Using advanced safety inspection tools to monitor pipe condition and verify that pipelines are being maintained safely.
- Monitoring areas around pipelines to maintain proper clearance from shrubs, trees, fences and other obstructions that could hinder these important inspection activities.
Markers and maps show general location
You can find the approximate location of major pipelines near you with the help of pipeline markers and online maps.
Pipeline markers such as the ones shown below indicate the general location, but not the depth or number of buried pipelines in the area. These markers display the pipeline operator’s name and a phone number to call in case of emergency.
Pipeline maps show about where major gas pipelines are in your area. You can search:
- Our map of high-pressure gas transmission and distribution pipelines.
- National Pipeline Mapping System (NPMS).
Call 811 before you dig
Remember that these pipeline markers and maps should never be used as substitutes for contacting DigAlert at 811 or digalert.org at least two working days before you dig so you know where underground utility-owned lines, including gas pipelines, are located.
