About this book

The management of rights-of-way by electric and telephone utilities, highway departments, gas pipeline companies, and railroads around the world is guided and constrained by policies and regulations to protect the environment. Companies that manage rights-of-way are required to comply with these regulations, and are seeking the most cost-effective management practices which, at the same time, demonstrate stewardship of the environment. Protection of biodiversity and sustainable development are especially important as national goals in many countries, and rights-of-way managers are seeking practical ways to include public participation in their operations.

Effects of the introduction of a pipeline right-of-way with planted travel corridors to a deer wintering area in northern New York (K.R. Dominske). Snowshoe hare, red squirrel and gray squirrel winter activity in a 120 kV powerline right-of-way and in adjacent forests (G.J. Doucet, D.T.Brown). White-tailed deer (Odocoileus Virginianus) use of forested travel corridors in a twin 735 kV powerline right-of-way - 20 years of observation (G.J. Doucet, Y. Garant).
