Transmission Pipelines and Land Use: A Risk-Informed Approach -- Special Report 281

A new report from the National Academies' Transportation Research Board examines safety issues related to energy transmission pipelines, which transport virtually all of the nation's natural gas and two-thirds of its petroleum each year. The report recommends that the federal government develop guidelines for land-use decisions to minimize risks to the public, pipeline workers and the environment near existing and future pipelines.

This series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on July 19, 2004 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
