Incidents

An incident is defined in 49 CFR §191.3 as a release of natural gas from an operator's system resulting in a death, a serious injury, significant property damage, significant gas loss, or a significant emergency event.

Starting in 2021, Wisconsin incident investigation data can be found in this spreadsheet: Pipeline Incident Investigations.xlsx

It includes investigations on possible incidents even if they do not meet the definition of an incident.
