Emergency Response Procedures
Pipeline accidents are rare but can occur. It’s important to know how to recognize a pipeline emergency and take immediate actions to protect people, property, and the environment. Signs of a leak might include low-lying, dense white cloud or fog originating near the pipeline; a pool of liquid on the ground; dead or discolored vegetation amid healthy plants; water bubbling or being blown into the air; fire or explosion near the pipeline; an unusual hissing sound or any strange, unusual gaseous odor near the pipeline. If you suspect a pipeline leak, leave the area quickly and warn others to stay away. You should seek the aid of local authorities. Immediately call 911 and notify Motiva at 1-800-369-0282.
