Pipeline Safety

Most Pipeline Accidents Are Preventable. Call Before You Dig. 

Accidental strikes by property owners or contractors make up the majority of pipeline accidents. These accidents are preventable only if owners or excavators will contact pipeline companies BEFORE they attempt to dig. Before you dig on your property, please contact your local One-Call System. 

National Call Before You Dig: 811

How to Recognize a Pipeline Leak

Although not common, we encourage everyone to understand the signs of a possible pipeline leak:
Sight: A pool of liquid on the ground near a pipeline, a dense white cloud or fog over a pipeline, or discolored vegetation surrounding the pipeline 
Sound: An unusual noise coming from the pipeline, like a hissing or roaring sound 
Smell: An unusual smell may accompany a pipeline leak

What to Do If You Suspect a Pipeline Leak 

  • Leave the area immediately; warn others.
  • Do not touch, breathe, or contact the leaking liquids or gases. 
  • Do not attempt to stop the leak by operating pipeline equipment. 
  • Do not light a match, start an engine, use a telephone, switch on/off light switches, or do anything that might create a spark.
  • From a safe distance, call 911 or your local emergency response number. 
  •  Do not drive a vehicle into a leak or vapor cloud area.
