SAFETY


 

Your Role…..

Everyone has a role in pipeline safety. To ensure the safety of you and those around you, ALWAYS call your local one-call center before you plan to dig or conduct any excavation. The nation-wide toll-free number to reach your local one-call center is: 8-1-1.

This free call will notify underground facility owners, including pipelines, in the area of your intention to dig or excavate. The facility owners will come out to the location of the planned excavation and mark any facilities in the area of the excavation. These markings will assist you with preventing damage to facilities in the area of excavation.

Being aware of your surroundings and the presence of pipelines will also assist with ensuring your safety.
