Why is Colonial taking this line out of service?

Given the integrity issues on this line, and taking into consideration the cost, time to repair or replace, and the potential disruption to service, we have made the decision to take this line out of service.

Is the line safe?

Yes, we are currently operating the line safely and at reduced pressure and flow rates. 

Why not replace the line?

We considered several options, including replacement of the line, however we have determined it would be best to focus priorities and resources on other key integrity and maintenance projects.

What does this line transport and what are the origins?

Line 25 transports gasoline and other fuels from Colonial’s Mitchell Junction tank farm in Columbia, VA, to five terminals serving customers in the Roanoke area.
