• pipeline right-of-way

  • An underground 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 1-800-850-0051. 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.
