Notes: Accident related excludes human errors, package failures, and unreported cases. Water data are for incidents involving packaged materials only and do not include incidents where the vessel is the container (e.g., a barge or oil tanker). Nonpipeline reporting requirements changed in 2002. Pipeline data contain all incidents reported to PHMSA based on the reporting criteria in effect at the time of the incidents. Natural gas transmission includes the gathering system. Data for 2010 are revised.
