Pipeline maintenance

The company will be conducting a maintenance program on their markers, certifying compliance with required US DOT regulations. The program began Tuesday, Oct. 1 and will continue though the end of the year.

The markers are white PVC posts with a yellow top include company contact information. According to a release from the town, the markers are critical in identifying the location of the pipeline and aid in preventing damage by excavators.
