Illinois Pipeline Awareness > Illinois > Home
Pipelines in Illinois may include large-diameter lines carrying energy products to population centers, as well as small-diameter lines that may deliver natural gas to businesses and households in your neighborhood.
The energy products carried in pipelines fuel our lives and our livelihoods. They heat our homes and schools, power our industrial base and enable our daily commutes.
Pipelines are by far the safest method for transporting energy products. However, when pipeline incidents occur they can present significant risks to the public and the environment.
That's why we encourage everyone in Illinois to learn about pipelines and the products they carry, as well as a few simple steps you can take to help us ensure pipeline safety in your community.
