Husky identifies the location of its pipelines with above ground markers and provides information to the public, first responders and government agencies about how to work safely on or near this infrastructure.
Third parties who wish to work near Husky pipelines should notify both the Company and the One-Call service in their province.
At the time of construction, Husky's pipelines are buried to a depth that meets, and in some cases exceeds, legal requirements. If there are concerns about a pipeline's coverage, please contact the Company.

The NEB's safety zone is a 30-metre zone on either side of a pipeline's right-of-way. It protects people, the environment and the pipeline. NEB's regulations govern activities on or within that safety zone:
