Subject: Information: Business district

From: Cesar De Leon, Deputy Associate Administrator for Pipeline Safety, DPS-2

To: Jack G. Edwards, Pipeline Safety Specialist, DTI-60

This responds to your memo concerning the frequency of gas leakage surveys. You asked if a gas main located beneath a highway that parallels a shopping center parking lot is in a "business district" under 49 CFR 192.723 (b)(1).

Part 192 does not define the term "business district." However, by its plain meaning, the term refers to a place whose primary function is the conduct of business. Thus, the shopping center and its parking lot are a business district.. As you have depicted the main, it lies outside a business district.
