The Transmission Integrity Management Program (TIMP) ensures the integrity of Washington Gas’ transmission pipelines, which are regulated by the Department of Transportation (DOT). Per DOT 192 Subpart O, the company follows certain requirements to manage the risk from its transmission lines. The TIMP team determines how we identify, prioritize, assess, evaluate, repair and validate the integrity of the company’s 173 miles of transmission pipelines, which include 78 miles of High Consequence Areas (HCAs). In addition, the TIMP team is also responsible for identifying Moderate Consequence Areas (MCAs) and performing assessments in those areas.
Washington Gas places the highest priority on safety and compliance and supports the goals of improving pipeline safety as well as raising the public's confidence about the safety of pipelines.
