 PHMSA Advisory Bulletin - Potential for Damage to Pipeline Facilities Caused by Flooding (27 July 2011) 

PHMSA has issued an advisory bulletin to all owners and operators of gas and hazardous liquid pipelines to communicate the potential for damage to pipeline facilities caused by severe flooding. The advisory includes nine actions that operators should consider taking to ensure the integrity of pipelines in case of flooding. It further states that, if a pipeline has suffered damage, is shut-in, or is being operated at a reduced pressure as a precautionary measure as a result of flooding, the operator should advise the appropriate PHMSA Regional Office or State pipeline safety authority before returning the line to service, increasing its operating pressure, or otherwise changing its operating status. PHMSA or the State will review all available information and advise the operator, on a case-by-case basis, whether and to what extent a line can safely be returned to full service.
