Protect Pipelines and Your School
Protect pipelines near your school by assuring that school personnel or contractors call 811 at least 48 hours before digging or excavating on school property.
Report any scrapes or dents that occur during excavation so that the damage can be inspected and repaired if needed to prevent future leaks or serious accidents.
Clear the Way for Pipeline Right-of-Way
Pipeline right-of-way is the land above and approximately 25 feet on either side of the pipeline. Schools along the right-of-way are prohibited from building or planting in the right-of-way.
Explorer regularly conducts maintenance to trim trees and remove shrubs or structures that are located in the right-of-way. We need to be able to clearly view the pipeline corridor during aerial or foot patrols as a part of our safety practices.
