#Pipelines can avoid local waterbodies by tunneling beneath and never coming into contact with the water.
Horizontal directional drilling (HDD) is used to burrow #pipelines 100 feet or more beneath the bottom of a waterbody, never coming into contact or close to the water itself.

#Pipelines protect local waterbodies with shutoff valves on both shorelines.

#Pipelines, like cable, water, and sewer lines, travel near the surface and far away from water sources deeper below.

Multiple layers of soil, sand, and clay can provide a barrier between #pipelines and local water sources. 

As part of the planning process, a major #pipeline project must include a detailed study of its environmental impacts. The potential impact of a pipeline on natural resources, wildlife, habitat, and cultural resources are all considered.

#Pipeline pumps run on electricity allowing them to make their deliveries without creating local air emissions.

#Pipelines have little to no emissions. In fact, pipelines help lower carbon emissions by reducing the need to transport fuel by truck or train. 

#Pipelines are wrapped in a protective coating to prevent corrosion.

#Pipelines have flow and pressure sensors that immediately alert operators of potential problems.

#Pipelines are made of high-grade steel that meets industry and government specifications. #PipelineSafety

#Pipelines are designed to meet stringent federal and state regulations covering pipeline material, strength, and thickness. This helps ensure families and communities are protected. #PipelineSafety
Computer-aided pipeline monitoring can rapidly detect issues so that #pipeline operators can quickly shut down pumps and close valves to isolate segments if necessary. #PipelineSafety
