Working and Digging Near Pipelines and Pipeline Facilities
Do you always call One-Call before initiating any deep excavation activity?
Farm and ranch equipment is a common source of pipeline damage and can cause loss of life and property. Excavation activities that fall outside the scope of normal farming activities and deep excavation activity, including plowing, tilling, drain tiling, ditch cleaning, terracing, subsoiling, or installing a fence can endanger underground pipelines.
Farmers and ranchers can protect their family, employees and property by verifying the location of pipelines before excavating and knowing how to identify, respond to and prevent a leak or rupture.
