Here, you can find a table of pipeline incidents as reported to the Pipeline Safety Division of the Department of Public Utilities (DPU).

Table of Contents


Operators that transport natural gas are obligated to report certain incidents, defined in 49 CFR § 191.3, to the DPU.  The DPU reviews the incident report and investigates the cause and ensures that the operator properly addressed any safety issues.  Some incidents are not within the DPU’s jurisdiction.  The table below lists all incidents reported to the DPU.  Pursuant to St. 2014, c. 149, § 5, if the DPU did not investigate an incident, the reason is explained in the table below. 

The table can be searched using the search bar and also sorted by clicking or tapping the column headers.
