If you or your company does excavation work or you are a homeowner or farmer who occasionally digs on your property, we need your help in preventing pipeline emergencies. Records show that damage from excavation-related activities, particularly from equipment digging into pipelines, is the number one cause of pipeline accidents. Without proper coordination, excavation activities in the vicinity of underground pipelines can result in very dangerous situations.
What to do if you are digging and disturb a pipeline.
Even if you cause what seems to be only minor damage to the pipeline, notify us immediately. A gouge, scrape, dent or crease to the pipe or coating may cause a future break or leak. Even if it is only a scuff mark, we need to know. It is imperative that we inspect and repair any damage to the line.
