Public Awareness Programs

Ever wonder why you continuously receive those "envelope stuffers" from your local utility company in your monthly bill?  Well, this activity is actually part of your utility company's public awareness program which is required by law. 

Some programs also provide the public general education on how to live safely with pipelines in their communities, hazardous materials transporting through or to these communities, and how to identify and respond to incidents.
