Various stakeholders, including Federal and state regulators, industry, pipeline operators, public, emergency response officials, local public officials, land planners, and excavators, will engage and discuss ways to strengthen pipeline safety public awareness. Members of the public may attend this free workshop. To help assure that adequate space is provided, all attendees, both in person and by webcast, should register in advance for the workshop.
