Archived Rulemaking: Gas Pipeline Damage Prevention Programs

50-fr-49575.pdf (435.5 KB)

This notice proposes to delete the rule that requires gas pipeline operators to respond to notices of intended excavation in areas that do not contain buried gas pipelines. The current rule is unduly burdensome and counterproductive in connection with many existing damage prevention programs. The proposed rule change should encourage greater participation in "one-call" system programs and reduce program costs.
