Our goal is to complete the restoration process with minimal impacts to landowners while protecting the environment. For areas of the right of way where tree clearing, grading and other similar disturbance has occurred, we will restore the right of way as close as possible to its original contours and revegetate it in accordance with landowner agreements and agency requirements. For areas where only trees have been felled but not removed, we will leave the trees in place to avoid unnecessary environmental harm, unless otherwise requested by the landowner. For areas where pipe has been installed, we will leave the pipe in place and restore the right of way. Leaving underground utilities in place is a common practice and does not pose a risk to public safety or the environment.
