Pipeline Markers

<<Back to articles

Pipelines are buried in areas called rights-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 number to reach the company in the event of an emergency
–Provide the name of the pipeline company
