NEWS AND EVENTS

National INCIDENT REPORTS

Note: NAPSR Region Meetings are typically reserved for NAPSR members and PHMSA. On occasion, NAPSR may invite outside speaker to present at the meetings on pipeline safety or related topics. The National Meeting is open to any attendee, however both region and national meetings have portions of the meeting in "closed session" to enable discussion of member-only information. Please contact Robert Clarillos, NAPSR Administrative Manager, rclarillos@gmail.com, if you wish further information or if you have an interest in attending or presenting at any meeting.

The states continue to show improvement in their State Damage Prevention Programs.  Keep in mind that most state pipeline safety programs do not have authority to change the underground facility laws. This is the duty of the state legislatures. Improvements continue to be made.
