Residents and Businesses

It takes more than 2 million miles of pipeline to fuel the U.S. economy. 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 pipeline safety is a shared responsibility for operators and for those who live and work nearby. 

Learn how you can support Colonial in keeping the pipeline and your community safe.
