Ground surveys are a first step in gathering critical information for developing a pipeline proposal. Generally, each property will be visited by various specialists in land, engineering and environmental sciences. These visits may or may not be concurrent, but no one visit should last longer than one or two days. Some properties may need to be revisited to obtain additional data. During the survey, vehicular traffic will be confined to existing roads and access ways. Nothing will ever be removed from your property without your explicit permission. After the survey teams are finished, you may see survey stakes or ribbon tied to fences or vegetation. These markers are necessary to maintain a line of sight for the areas that have been surveyed. Our survey crews will take every precaution to ensure no damage to your property or disruption of your daily activities will occur.
