High consequence areas are determined based on population density, whether they are near unusually sensitive areas (USAs) or near commercially navigable waterways.
Office of Pipeline Safety (now part of PHMSA) defines unusually sensitive areas (USAs) as places that contain drinking water and ecological resources that are potentially more susceptible to long-term, irreversible, or irretrievable damage from a pipeline accident.
Both low-stress and rural gathering lines were historically exempt from extensive regulation by PHMSA, but in response to the incident, PHMSA proposed new regulations to apply design, construction and inspection requirements--including internal inspection--to lines within one-quarter mile of unusually sensitive areas.
And of these lines, half are more than 40 years old, Recent federal regulations specify pipeline operators to assess, evaluate, repair and validate certain pipeline segments, which in the event of leak or failure could affect highly populated areas or other unusually sensitive areas.
Unusually sensitive areas (USAs): Locations that include drinking water and ecological areas that are unusually sensitive to environmental damage in the event of a hazardous liquid pipeline release.
