The Pipeline Association for Public Awareness (PAPA) is a nonprofit organization whose members include people, organizations and other entities who own or operate pipeline facilities or who make contributions to support PAPA’s pipeline safety educational programs.  The Association accepts members in two categories: Pipeline Members and Sustaining Members.


PAPA administers pipeline safety and emergency readiness programs for emergency responders, excavators, public officials and school officials across the United States. Programs help members comply with the requirements of RP1162 while increasing awareness about pipeline safety.  The basic member dues for Pipeline Members are $35 per county plus applicable program fees.
