Know What’s Below. Call Before You Dig.
Accidental “dig-ins” by property owners or contractors make up the majority of pipeline accidents. 811 is the national call-before-you-dig phone number. You can help maintain the integrity of the pipeline system and prevent accidents by using the nationwide Call Before You Dig service, available by calling 811 or going to the state 811 center’s website. Anyone who will be digging or excavating using mechanized equipment — commercial contractors, road maintenance crews, telephone pole installers, fence builders, landscape companies or homeowners who may be digging a drainage ditch, installing a fence or building an addition — can make one telephone call to give notice of their plans to dig in a specific area. For more information about the Call-Before-You-Dig program, visit www.call811.com.
How to Recognize a Leak and What to Do If One Occurs
Although not common, we do encourage you to understand the signs of a possible pipeline leak and how to respond:
- Sight: A pool of liquid on the ground near a pipeline, a dense white cloud or fog over a pipeline, or discolored vegetation surrounding the pipeline may be signs of a possible leak.
- Sound: An unusual noise coming from the pipeline, like a hissing or roaring sound, may be a possible sign of a leak.
- Smell: An unusual smell will accompany a pipeline leak.
What to Do If A Leak Occurs
- Leave the area immediately; warn others.
- Do not touch, breathe, or make contact with the leaking liquids or gases.
- Do not attempt to stop the leak by operating pipeline equipment.
- Do not light a match, start an engine, use a telephone, switch on/off light switches, or do anything that might create a spark.
- From a safe distance, call 911 or your local emergency response number and the pipeline company.
- Do not drive a vehicle into a leak or vapor cloud area.
- Warn others.
