• pipeline right of way

  • An pipeline right-of-way is the land over the pipeline, usually 25 feet from each side of each pipeline. It is often recognizable as a corridor clear of trees, buildings or other structures except for pipeline markers. A pipeline right-of-way must be kept free from structures and other obstructions.


    Fenced and secured areas with some above ground piping provide access to valves along the pipeline system.


    If you spot a problem, contact Boardwalk immediately at 1-225-387-0871 or 1-866-574-4483. Do not operate the valves. 


    If a Boardwalk pipeline crosses your property, do not plant trees or high shrubs on the right-of-way. Also, do not dig, store or place anything there without first having Boardwalk personnel mark the pipeline, stake the right-of-way, and explain the company's construction guidelines to you.


    You may contact Boardwalk through your One-Call center.
