Gas & Propane

Prevent Damage with a Reliable Tracer Wire System

Gas lines are among the most dangerous buried utilities and yet account for 27% of the estimated number of underground facility damages in the U.S. each year. To avoid damage, facility owners are required to install tracer wire along with gas pipe for future locatability. But tracer wire alone is not enough. A complete system including ground rods, connectors, and access points ensures that the locate signal is carried along the entire target line.

In addition to safety and damage prevention, Copperhead understands the importance of standards, approvals, and regulatory compliance. That’s why we developed best practices for selecting and installing a tracer wire system that will meet regulatory requirements and best protect your buried gas lines and those involved in excavation.
