The majority of the 2.4 million miles of energy related pipelines within the United States are buried, creating an opportunity for excavation related damage. While all buried pipeline easements should be clearly marked with yellow pipeline markers, these markers do not provide adequate detail for excavation. WW has registered its pipeline assets with the Texas 811 one-call and damage prevention organization and commits to providing accurate support and information to 3rd party excavators to minimize pipeline damage and risk to excavators.
