How Close is the Pipeline to You?

Seaway Pipeline evacuation zone next to Lake Lavon and Lake Ray Hubbard
Here are three ways to find out how close the Seaway tar sand pipelines pass to your home, business, school or water supply. (Any of these maps may have errors in precision or accuracy; if you plan to dig near a pipeline, always contact the pipeline owner first.)

Use Google Maps or Google Earth


Use Enterprise Products Pipeline Viewer

To see what existing Enterprise pipelines pass within one mile of a street address or GPS coordinates, use Enterprise's Pipeline Viewer . "Jones Creek to Cushing" is another name for the Seaway Pipeline. As of January 2013, this viewer does not show the Seaway Loop, Seaway Extension and Seaway Addition Enbridge and Enterprise plan to build in 2013. This viewer shows only what falls within one mile of the point queried; a pipeline one mile one inch away will not appear.

Use the Texas Railroad Commission pipeline viewer
