Archived Rulemaking: Transportation of Natural and Other Gas and Hazardous Liquids by Pipelines; Line Marking at Navigable Waterways

48-fr-2987.pdf (1011.21 KB)

By this notice, MTB proposes to revoke the regulations that require pipeline operators to place and maintain line markers at locations where gas and hazardous liquid pipelines cross navigable waterways. The current regulations are considered costly and unnecessary for safety in light of requirements and practices of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
