It takes more than 2.5 million miles of pipeline to fuel America and keep our economy moving. With that much pipe above and below ground, it should come as no surprise that many of us live and work near pipelines.
According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, pipelines are the safest way to transport liquid fuels. Colonial’s monitoring, inspection, and detection programs are designed to keep our pipelines safe. But those who live and work near our lines can also play a role in pipeline safety. Learn how you can support Colonial in keeping the pipeline and your community safe.

- Did you know that it’s the law in all 50 states that you must Call 811 to have underground lines marked before digging?
