Pipelines and Transmission Corridors
Instructors: Hayley Carlock, Hugh Archer, Cathy Howell
Land trusts across the country are facing a big threat as energy companies and state and local governments eye undeveloped land as perfect places to site transmission corridors or pipelines to meet growing energy needs (or, in some cases, to support purely commercial activities). In this webinar, we will examine these threats and explore creative strategies if the energy company comes knocking. The webinar will focus on real, life lessons-learned from land trusts in New York, Kentucky and elsewhere who have grappled with this problem.
Participants will learn about:
- Considerations in engaging with energy companies and regulatory agencies
- Strategies for building public support both before a threat appears and when facing an immediate threat
- Legal strategies if faced with condemnation
- How to use the Endangered Species Act and other federal regulations when facing a possible pipeline or transmission corridor
