About IPA

The Iowa Pipeline Association (IPA) was formed to promote and disseminate pipeline safety communications that emphasizes public safety, pipeline integrity and environmental stewardship.

Many liquid and natural gas transmission and distribution pipeline operators within the state of Iowa have formed an alliance to assist in communicating consistent pipeline safety messages to the following stakeholder audiences:

Communications include enough information so that in the event of a pipeline emergency the intended audience members will know how to identify a potential hazard, protect themselves, notify emergency personnel and notify the pipeline operator.

Teaming Together to Promote Pipeline Safety

The following statements of support are from agencies, businesses, and people who are familiar with our mission, share our values, and are interested in the success of our organization.

“I appreciate IPA’s work to provide first responders with information on pipelines, both on what is out there and on proper response to a pipeline emergency. It is especially helpful that pipeline companies can now pool their safety liaison efforts to provide a single high quality presentation rather than have multiple companies competing for first responder time and attention.”
