Pipeline Safety for Excavators

There are more than 2.6 million miles of transmission, gathering and distribution pipelines in the United States that transport a variety of petroleum and natural gas products. Pipelines and facilities provide support for two-thirds of the energy we use every year. The U.S, Department of Transportation states that pipelines are the safest mode of transportation for natural gas and petroleum products. See below for resources that will help excavators who may need to work near these pipelines.
