Here Are Some of the Best Places to Get More Information

If you find others please pass them along so we can add them here.

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration’s (PHMSA) Stakeholder Communication website is one of the best places to start. It includes important information on a whole range of subjects.

For maps of natural gas transmission pipelines and hazardous liquid pipelines down to the neighborhood level go to the public viewer of the National Pipeline Mapping System.

For information about pipeline safety in specific states go to PHMSA’s state pages.

For a variety of filtered pipeline incident data go to PHMSA’s Incidents Report Page

To download the raw incident data on all incidents reported go here.

Wikipedia has a great list of pipeline incidents (thanks in large part to group member Michael Holmstrom).

Here are the federal regulations on pipeline safety set by PHMSA.

Here is a downloadable copy of the Pipeline Safety Statutes in the U.S. Code that Congress sets

For information about incidents, enforcement cases, and inspections of specific pipeline companies to to PHMSA’s Operator Information Page.

For contact information for PHMSA’s regional Community Assistance and Technical Services (CATS) managers that should be able to help answer questions and get information go to the CATS Homepage

For information that local governments can use to ensure safer pipelines by using their zoning, permitting, and planning authorities go to Pipelines and Informed Planning Alliance Homepage, or the Municipal Research & Services Center Planning Near Pipelines website
