HOW TO IDENTFY A PIPELINE
Since most pipelines are buried underground, markers are used to indicate the approximate location of pipelines.
The markers contain the name of the pipeline operator and emergency contact information.
Markers do not indicate the exact location or depth of the pipeline.
Pipelines may not always follow a straight line between markers.
To learn more about pipelines operating in your area, visit the National Pipeline Mapping System (NPMS) at www.npms.phmsa.dot.gov. Created by the Department of Transportation, Office of Pipeline Safety and other state agencies, the NPMS was built from data submitted by pipeline operators.
