Landowner’s Guide to Pipelines (Last updated July 2016)
The Pipeline Safety Trust received a TAG Grant from PHMSA to update our original landowners guide to pipelines.
As part of the original 2011 effort, we conducted a survey of landowners to see what information they need, what their concerns are and how to best get that information to them. You can see those results by clicking here.
Information relating to easement negotiations and eminent domain was assembled with the assistance of a variety of people across the country. Links to eminent domain material for specific states provided by members of the Owners’ Counsel of America (www.ownerscounsel.com) are below.
The 2011 report to PHMSA on this effort can be downloaded by clicking here.
