Greer CPW owns and operates hundreds of miles of natural gas transmission and distribution pipelines. This vast network of underground pipelines is used to transport clean, efficient natural gas energy to our customers. The pipelines are located in residential area and business districts. The transmission and distribution pipelines, which are buried under ground, operate at various pressures. Some of these pressures can be as much as 450 PSIG.
Greer CPW has an excellent reputation for operating these pipelines in a safe, efficient, and environmentally responsible manner – but pipeline safety is everyone’s responsibility.
Whether you are a homeowner or business owner with a pipeline crossing your property, or a construction company working on a project in the vicinity of a pipeline, knowing the basics about pipeline safety will help you avoid unnecessary damage to the pipeline, property damage and personal injury.
Greer CPW natural gas main lines are designated with yellow markers and signs, which stand about 4 feet high. You will see the markers where pipelines cross roadways, and periodically along the rest of the route. These signs provide a number to reach Greer CPW at any time: 864.848.5500. Careless digging during construction or landscaping work is what typically causes damage to pipelines. Such damage does not necessarily cause an immediate gas leak, but may result in a leak at a later time. To prevent damage to Greer CPW natural gas pipelines, please call the PUPS (Palmetto Utility Protection Service) One-Call Service at 811 at least 72 hours before starting any type of digging, grading or similar activity. Greer CPW personnel will come out to the site to advise you of the location of the pipeline.
