The huge natural-gas explosion that rocked a Northern California neighborhood last week alerted homeowners around the country to the risks posed by the nation’s aging — and in some cases, ill-maintained — network of underground gas pipelines. It also underscored how little we know about the condition of pipes below us.

To get an idea of where a gas transmission line — the larger, high-pressure pipe that routes gas to your area — lies, you can use the Transportation Department’s National Pipeline Mapping System Viewer and search by county. However, this does not show the smaller distribution lines that route gas from a transmission line to your house.
