Consultation has concluded

API Recommended Practice 1162 and federal regulations require pipeline operators to provide safety information twice a year to customers of gas utility systems; once a year to residents and businesses near pipelines for gas utility systems, and once every two years for transmission pipeline systems.

Safety communication materials include messages regarding:

  • Identifying the location of pipelines
  • Safe digging procedures, including calling 811 before any digging activity
  • Recognizing, reporting and responding to a leak
  • Reporting unauthorized digging or suspicious activity

Pipeline owners and operators typically share this safety information with the public through direct mail, emails, websites, videos, and other forms of communication.

Tell us what you think! Check out the safety information materials below. Do these look or feel familiar? Do they tell you what you know what to do to avoid an issue or identify a leak?
