Most pipelines, including the JBBR Pipeline, are buried underground for safety reasons, but this also puts them at risk for accidental damage caused by construction, farming and drilling.
Markers, which are color coded by the product transported as shown in the diagram to the right, identify the approximate path of the pipelines, but they do not provide all the information necessary to initiate an excavation. Calling 811 can help you identify key factors, such as the depth, the number of pipelines buried and the exact position of the lines to ensure that your dig goes safely and smoothly.
