PHMSA Guidance to State Pipeline Safety Programs Regarding COVID-19

Thursday, March 19, 2020

In light of the recent actions taken by federal, state, and local government agencies in response to the current COVID-19 outbreak, PHMSA is providing guidance to its state pipeline safety partners on ways to continue to effectively execute their shared pipeline safety mission.  The guidance also explains actions PHMSA will take in its efforts to continue to support the activities of state pipeline safety programs during this time.

PHMSA recognizes the resources of its state partners may be limited for the foreseeable future and encourages state pipeline safety programs to consider the guidance as they proceed with their oversight activities.

See PHMSA’s COVID-19 Guidance to State Partners for more details.
