Where are Gas Pipelines Located?
There are more than 2.5 million miles of natural gas pipelines in the U.S.
Pipeline markers and warning signs are located at frequent intervals along the pipeline right-of-way. Signs list the product traveling through the pipeline, the name of the pipeline operator, and operator’s telephone number in case of an emergency.
Some signs also display the 811 “Call Before You Dig” notification phone number. Pipeline markers and signs do not show a pipeline’s depth so it’s important to call 811 to get specific location information before digging near a pipeline.
