If you have noticed pink flags around, it is because the Columbia Gas engineering team is surveying the area ahead of a possible project in the future. More information will be available if and when the project is finalized.
UPDATE (9/21/2021): Columbia Gas has communicated to the City of Westlake that it anticipates a pipeline replacement project beginning later this year and intends to keep the stakes in the ground that have been in place for some time now. Columbia acknowledged that some residents are growing frustrated with the presence of the stakes and that residents may remove them if they want for the time-being. Columbia will then have to re-stake as necessary when the project begins. If at any point, Columbia makes the determination that the project will not go forward until 2022, the company has said it will remove all remaining stakes at that time.
