As a farmer or rancher, you play an important part in helping keep our pipelines safe. Always call 811 at least 48 hours prior to any kind of soil-disturbing activities, which may include but is not limited to, plowing, terracing, deep tiling, ditching, soil ripping, drain tile installation, digging fence posts, etc.

Never guess or assume you know where a pipeline is located or how deep it is buried. Even if you have called before and know the general location of the pipeline, soil conditions may have changed which could impact the depth of cover for the pipe.

If damage does occur, it should always be reported to Western Midstream as soon as possible, even it the damage seems minor and does not result in a visible leak. Protective coating damage or even a small dent could result in larger issues in the future.
