  • National Pipeline Mapping System The National Pipeline Mapping System (NPMS) allows you to look up major gas transmission and oil pipelines county by county. This way you can see if there is a pipeline in your area
  • Pipeline markers Pipelines are marked with above-ground signs that indicate their general location and provide basic information about the pipeline, including the product carried and the name and contact information of the company that operates the line.
  • Call before you dig Excavation damage is the leading cause of serious natural gas transmission pipeline incidents that result in fatalities and injuries. All interstate pipeline companies promote damage prevention laws and state “Call Before You Dig” programs.
  • Pipeline Public Awareness Programs Promoting "811 Call Before You Dig" at every opportunity to remind excavators and the public that they should contact the local One-Call center before beginning any excavation.
  • Community Growth Around Pipelines As your neighborhood or community expands, there is a chance that some of that growth will be near a pipeline’s path.
  • What to Do in an Emergency Pipeline leaks are rare, but being able to recognize and respond to a suspected leak or rupture is an important part of living and working safely around underground pipelines.
