Pipelines are the safest, most efficient and most reliable way to transport liquid and natural gas energy resources. In the United States alone, more than two million miles of pipelines deliver petroleum products and natural gas.
It’s important for administrators, teachers and staff at schools along our pipeline rights-of-way to:
- Know if there are pipelines near your school and who operates them.
- Know how to recognize the signs of a pipeline leak and how to respond in an emergency.
- Know about 811 and safe excavation near your school.
Read our Pipeline Safety and Emergency Information brochure for schools and communities based near the NEXUS Gas Transmission pipeline.
You may view maps of pipelines across the United States using the National Pipeline Mapping System, a web site managed by the federal government’s Pipeline & Hazardous Material Safety Administration.
We are happy to meet with school officials, faculty members or maintenance supervisors to provide information about our pipeline systems and emergency response plans. It's critical that pipeline emergency response is included in the emergency response and evacuation plan for schools near pipelines.
Our representatives are also available for presentations to faculty, staff and students, to provide information about pipelines and the role they play in meeting our energy needs.
Please contact us for more information.
Information on the general location of transmission pipelines and contact information for pipeline operators is also available through the National Pipeline Mapping System. Maps, markers and other resources should never be used to find the exact location of a pipeline. Always call 811 before you dig.
