Among the services we offer are: by-monthly inspection and maintenance of rectifiers, annual surveys, anode groundbeds evaluation and replacement, test stations repair/replace, critical bond boxes inspection and monitoring of any kind CP component.

Our employees are well versed in the regulatory codes affecting the natural gas and liquid pipeline industry, i.e., Department of Transportation (DOT) and federal Title 49 CFR Parts 191, 192, 195 and 199. We provide a wide range of engineering services to the pipeline industry including many areas of consulting expertise and project management.  The following will outline the variety of services


Most types of underground gas pipelines are subject to strict federal and state law requirements. These include inspection, survey, documentation, reporting, and other requirements. These laws and regulations can be very confusing, especially to a small property manager like mobile home park, apartment, RV park, or complex owners. We provide education and training on all of the federal and state requirements to insure you have no issues with state and federal regulatory inspectors. We also provide all required compliance documents required by law such as:

  • DIMP Plan (Gas Distribution Integrity Management Program)

  • O.Q. Plan (Operators Qualification Plans)
  • Federal Title 49, Part 192 Compliance
  • Master Meter System Compliance
  • Interfacing with State Public Utilities Commissions (PUC)
  • Interfacing with Federal Department of Transportation (DOT)
  • Annual Cathodic Protection Surveys
  • Annual Gas Leak Surveys
  • Federal Compliant Emergency Plans
  • Federal Compliant Public Awareness Plans
  • Federal Compliant
  • Public Awareness Plan Handouts
  • Federal Compliant Damage Prevention Programs
  • O & M Manuals (Operations and Maintenance Plans)
  • O.Q. Sniff Test Documents
  • O.Q. Valve Inspection Documents

We evaluate, author, and train hundreds of small property owners to insure full compliance with state and federal regulators. We also interface with the state inspectors when compliance issues are identified and assist our clients in navigating the confusing regulatory environment.

Steel rusts and deteriorates when exposed to the elements. Rusting is an electrochemical process that affects most underground or underwater metallic structures, including oil and gas pipelines. To protect the environment and address the high costs of repair/replacement, it’s important to control corrosion. The most effective method to prevent corrosion is called cathodic protection, which has been used since the early 1800's. Cathodic Protection Idaho has been providing quality cathodic protection services for more than 30 years.

Cathodic protection (CP) is a technology used to control the corrosion of a metallic structure by making it work as the cathode in an electrochemical cell. The two primary types of cathodic protection are:

A galvanic (sometimes referred to as passive or sacrificial) system uses active metals (aluminum, zinc, or magnesium) to generate the protective current. It is best used on well-coated structures of a limited size. A common example would be the anodes on a boat hull.

Applications for cathodic protection include:

  • Aboveground storage tanks

  • Underground metallic storage tanks
  • Water storage tanks, both soil side and water-contact surfaces
  • Underground metallic pipelines
  • Power plant structures: intake, discharge, circulating water, fuel systems
  • Marine structures
