How can you tell where a pipeline is located?
Though helpful, pipeline markers are limited in the information they provide. Markers are placed near pipelines, but not necessarily on top of them. Marker signs do not provide information on the exact location, depth, diameter or number of pipelines they mark. In addition, a pipeline may not follow a straight line between adjacent markers.
What does a pipeline marker tell you?
By law, a pipeline marker must provide the approximate location of a pipeline(s), identify the material transported, identify the pipeline operator, and the operator's 24-hour emergency telephone number.
