Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission
Each year, the commission pipeline safety program spends approximately 700 days in the field inspecting pipeline facilities and operating procedures. On average, the program conducts 300 annual inspections, including 250 unannounced inspections of pipeline construction, repair and maintenance. Below you will find links to a list of documents associated with those inspections, as well as incident investigations and other pipeline activities.
The commission does economic and safety regulation of the four investor-owned local natural gas companies. The list provided below represents a history of pipeline inspections conducted for these companies since 2007.
Avista Utilities Corp.
Cascade Natural Gas Corp.
Northwest Natural Gas
Puget Sound Energy
