American Pipeline Consulting is a proud member of the National Utility Locating Contractors Association.  NULCA is an organization of contract locators, facility owners, one-call centers, excavators and industry suppliers that share a common interest in utility safety and utility damage prevention.

American Pipeline Consulting is a proud member of the Common Ground Alliance.  The purpose of the CGA is to ensure public safety, environmental protection and the integrity of services by promoting effective damage prevention practices.  The CGA is dedicated to shared responsibility in damage prevention and the promotion of the "best practices".

Hundreds of thousands of miles of underground facilities are vulnerable to excavation activities.  The use of one-call systems and the locating of underground facilities prior to excavation has a positive impact on worker safety, public safety and protection of the environment.  811 is the FCC-designated national N-11 number created to eliminate confusion of multiple "Call Before You Dig" numbers across the United States.  This quick and efficient one-call center access will notify the appropriate utilities, who then send locators to the requested site to mark underground lines for free.
