NOTICE TO RESIDENTS:  Colonial Pipeline passes through Surry County delivering natural gas to our region. Property owners along the pipeline may occassionally observe pipeline company contractors trimming or cutting the trees on the pipeline right-of-way. These activities are designed to maintain safety, as tree and shrub overgrowth can pose a threat to both pipeline integrity and early spill identification. For more information on these activities:
