Advisory Bulletin Issued to Pipeline Owners and Operators

Pipeline MarkersPHMSA has issued an advisory bulletin to remind pipeline owners and operators of the importance of assuring that pipelines have not been damaged during a railroad accident or other event occurring in the right-of-way. Further, the bulletin reminds pipeline owners and operators of the importance of providing pertinent information to rail operators and emergency response officials during an incident.
The information should include the presence, depth and location of the pipelines so that the movement of heavy equipment and debris on the right-of-way does not damage or rupture the pipeline or otherwise pose a hazard to people working in, and around, the accident location.
