Pipeline Safety Information



More than 225,000 miles of pipeline crisscross the entire State of Texas, including Galveston County. Eleven (11) pipeline companies operate twenty-eight (28) pipelines which traverse through the city. There are approximately forty-seven (47) linear miles of pipeline transmission lines within the city limits.

Pipelines and other underground utility lines crisscross our yards, neighborhoods and community. Because we can’t see them, we seldom think about their location, potential hazards and tips for keeping them safe.
