Pipelines are buried in an area called right-of-way. Pipeline markers are used to designate the general route of the pipeline. Markers can also be found where a pipeline crosses a street or railroad, emerges from the ground, or in waterways.
BE AWARE: Pipeline markers will not designate the exact location, depth or number of pipelines in the area.
MARKERS COME IN DIFFERENT SHAPES AND SIZES, BUT WILL ALWAYS:
- Include the word WARNING, DANGER or CAUTION
- Identify the material being transported
- Provide a phone number to reach the company in the event of an emergency
- Provide the name of the pipeline company
