Power Line/Pipeline Information

Code: TE-6450

Programs provide information about the location of corridors for the distribution of oil, gas, hydrogen and electricity; current and pending rights of way for power lines and pipelines across tracts of federal, state and private land; plans for the construction, maintenance and repair of electric power lines, natural gas pipelines and other components of energy "superhighways"; and regulations relating to secondary land uses around existing energy corridors. Overhead power lines are electric power transmission cables suspended by a sequence of steel towers or poles. The land directly under and adjacent to these power cables may be suitable for industrial uses; water distribution and oil or gas pipelines; urban trails; passive or active recreational spaces; or natural environmental areas such as urban wetlands. Also included are programs that provide information or respond to complaints from people about purported health risks associated with exposure to elevated levels of ELF magnetic fields such as those originating from electric power transmission lines or safety issues associated with transmission equipment; the impact of power lines and pipelines on surrounding wildlife and vegetation along the corridors; or who have concerns about other related issues.
