CONTRACTOR/EXCAVATOR INFORMATION
Support and cooperation from companies and utilities performing work along our pipeline right-of-way is necessary to ensure the safety of the public and protection of the environment. Above ground markers clearly show the location of the pipeline right-of-way.
Anyone who intends to perform excavation or boring work more than one foot deep, must notify potentially affected utilities two (2) working days before work is to start. The law requires it. Fortunately the process is easy and free to do. This can be done by calling the Utilities Underground Location Center at 811 and submitting a locate request. There is no cost for this service. A representative from McChord Pipeline Co. will contact you to let you know whether the pipeline is in the work area and will mark the pipeline location. If required, our inspectors will observe the excavation. Our pipeline should not be disturbed in any way without safeguards.
Third-party damage is one of the greatest risks for damage to underground pipelines. Above ground markers clearly show the above ground right-of-way. If you observe someone performing work on the pipeline right-of-way without an inspector present or any unusual conditions, please call us at the 24-hour emergency phone number 253-593-6085. Your assistance can further ensure the safety of the McChord Pipeline. If you notice any unusual conditions, e.g., the presence of oil, shifting ground, or soil subsidence (sinkholes) near the pipeline, please call the same emergency number.
A map showing the pipeline route can be found on this website.
A routing map showing the pipeline location in the Air Force Base is available from the McChord Pipeline Co. upon request for any contractor or McChord AFB agencies to alert them of the potential impacts associated with work inside the AFB.
A representative from the McChord Pipeline Co. would gladly come and talk to your organization to provide training regarding the pipeline. Additional information is available by contacting McChord Pipeline Co. directly at 253-593-6085.
