What is the width of the survey area, and why is surveying necessary?

The width of the survey corridor is approximately 600 feet. This width provides us greater flexibility when making final routing decisions.

Ground surveys are a first step in gathering critical information for developing a pipeline proposal. Generally, each property will be visited by specialists in land, engineering and environmental sciences. Some properties may need to be revisited to obtain additional data.

After the survey teams are finished, landowners 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. Survey crews will take every precaution to ensure no damage to property or disruption of daily activities will occur.
