One of the most common causes of underground pipeline damage is from the failure to mark a pipeline properly. Marker visibility becomes increasingly more difficult as vegetation becomes overgrown, or the signage is buried in snow. There is a simple solution that offers pipeline protection year round for those areas susceptible to these problems.
Natural Gas Measurement, Underground Utilities and More Blog

When a utility worker or emergency responder is called to a house because of a gas smell, there is one thing on their mind, 'Where does methane come from.' When methane is present, there is always interest in distinguishing if it is naturally occurring (like sewer gas), or if it is from a natural gas pipeline. Without knowing the source, it can lead to shutting down gas meters prematurely.
When field workers set out to protect their pipeline coating from scarring during digging, a unique excavation safety solution emerged demonstrating that it not only protects the coating, but also protects the integrity of the pipe itself. That solution was Safety Wrap.
