Growth and development in communities affect and are affected by existing pipeline infrastructure. As a public official you may maintain public facilities or make decisions concerning zoning, development and land use in areas where Enable Midstream Partners operates pipelines. We believe damage prevention awareness is a shared responsibility, so we want to work with you to help protect the safety of people living, working and congregating around our pipelines.
The U.S. Department of Transportation's Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) regulates pipeline safety. In 2010 PHMSA formed an alliance of government officials, pipeline operators, developers and other concerned organizations to create recommendations for safe land use and development around pipelines. The alliance is called the Pipelines and Informed Planning Alliance (PIPA). Community officials can use the recommended practices in this fact sheet, to help address local pipeline risks. To download the entire PIPA publication and other helpful pipeline safety information, visit naco.org.
As a Public Official, you also need to be aware of emergency response information. Please familiarize yourself the information on the Emergency Responder page of our website.
