MNOPS Alert Notice 01-2017

This Minnesota Office of Pipeline Safety (MNOPS) Alert Notice informs pipeline operators about a final rule issued by the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA). The rule specifies a timeframe for initial notification of accidents and incidents including a requirement for notice follow-up or revision, and expands on changes to pipeline systems requiring notification to the National Registry of Pipeline and LNG operators.

Call Before You Dig, But Beware — Not Every Utility Gets Marked!

The Minnesota Office of Pipeline Safety would like to remind property owners that "private facilities" on your property are not required to be located by utility employees.  More information can be found on our damage prevention page.
