Faraday-PPG Transmission Project

Easement Information

 
     

When we build a new transmission line, it is necessary to secure an easement or other property rights for the new line. Here are the key points you should know:

   

Since we have recently received approval from the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC) to build the transmission line, we have commenced contacting landowners. Letters have been mailed to landowners requesting a meeting to discuss project details, which will include the proposed easement location, the type of facilities we will build, easement compensation and post-construction property restoration or damage settlement post construction.

We have requested access to the property for the purposes of conducting land surveys and land studies in order to complete property legal descriptions/survey exhibits, environmental surveys, and studies of sensitive areas, and soil condition studies to aid in determining the depth and design of the foundations that will support the single-shaft steel poles. Landowners will be compensated for any crop or other damages caused by these surveys and studies.
   

The easement width for this project will be 100 feet. The transmission line will typically be located in the center of the easement. Landowners will retain full use and ownership of the property within the easement. However, structures may not be built or trees planted within or encroaching upon the easement.
   

In some cases, we may request temporary construction easements to facilitate transmission line construction. Landowners will be compensated for temporary construction easements.
   

At the end of construction we will restore property as close as practical to its preconstruction condition. Landowners will be compensated for crop, compaction, and other damages caused by construction of the transmission line.
   

In agricultural areas, Illinois Department of Agriculture guidelines will be followed. Every effort is made to avoid drainage tile lines. Damaged drainage tiles will be repaired. 
   

We plan to retain the services of the following contractors to assist us with landowner interactions, valuations/appraisals, and land surveying.
