Pipeline Location & Markers
The use of pipeline markers is required by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) to indicate
the approximate location of underground pipelines. These markers are usually located at road,
railroad and navigable waterway crossings. The markers are approximate and do not indicate the
depth of the pipeline. They do include the material transported in the line, name of the pipeline
operator and toll-free emergency phone number.
Causing damage to or removing a pipeline marker is a federal offense subject to a fine of up to $5,000 and/or up to one year in prison. If a marker is damaged, or in need of repair or relocation, contact Vectren at 1-800-227-1376.
