Public Awareness Program

Sunoco Pipeline L.P. strives to enhance public safety and environmental protection by increasing public awareness and knowledge of pipelines. Through our public awareness programs, our goal is to raise the awareness of the general public and other key stakeholders about the presence of our pipelines in your community and to increase the understanding of the important role of pipelines.

Our public awareness program is directed at all stakeholder groups that interact with our pipelines. These stakeholder groups include:

  • General Public - Residents that live on or near our pipelines
    • Schools - Please click here to visit an external site on energy facts
    • Businesses and places of congregation near the pipeline
    • Agricultural businesses
  • Local Officials
  • Emergency Responders
  • Excavators, Contractors and Land Developers

Please click here to visit the U.S. Department of Transportation’s website to learn more about the above stakeholder groups.

We believe that a more informed public will play a significant role in helping to prevent accidents that are caused by third-party damage to pipelines and dangerous encroachments on pipeline right-of-way.

As part of our public awareness program, we regularly provide a pipeline safety brochure that contains important information. Two versions of the brochure can be downloaded here:
