PHMSA's staff continues to keep those affected by the devastating storm and its ongoing aftermath in their hearts and thoughts as they deal with the difficult circumstances created by the tragic event of Hurricane Harvey.

As part of its efforts to assist with disaster relief activities, PHMSA established a webpage to provide critical information regarding its pipeline and hazardous materials safety programmes. PHMSA will continue to provide new information as more activities develop.

PHMSA's Office of Pipeline Safety continues to be in contact with pipeline operators in the path of Hurricane Harvey. Operators continue to aggressively implement their hurricane preparedness plans, and are taking actions to minimise the impact of the storm. Contractors are poised to begin post storm inspections of the pipeline infrastructure, which include aerial inspection by helicopter as soon as possible.

PHMSA's Office of Pipeline Safety continues to work closely with the Department of Energy and Department of Homeland Security to monitor the status of the critical infrastructure in the impacted areas.

For those needing to access critical underground infrastructure in the immediate Houston area or surrounding provinces/counties, PHMSA encourages a call to 811 prior to beginning any digging project.
