In efforts to improve pipeline safety issues caused by recent disasters and report findings to the public, the U.S. Department of Transportation has recently launched a new webpage, Pipeline Safety Update, which includes guidelines on regulations, safety issues, and stakeholder information in it.

Links to programs such as the National Pipeline Mapping System, a pipeline safety page with checklists, links, One-Call Centers and 811 are listed on the page that will be useful for reference to anyone before any excavation is even started.

Any input or documents that will help inform the stakeholder communities are welcomed when sent via email at
