Right of Way Maintenance
A "right of way" is a legal right, established by an easement or grant, to pass through land or property owned by another person. This means that Peoples has the right to access and maintain our pipelines, even when they are on another person's property.
When Peoples cleans up or "maintains" our pipelines in a Right of Way, what does that mean?
As part of that maintenance process, we sometimes conduct clean-up projects along those Right of Ways to allow for easier access. That clean-up work could be anything from simple mowing, to clearing brush or actually cutting down trees. The amount of clean-up work we do depends on the current condition of the Right of Way.
Why does Peoples have this Right of Way clean-up initiative in place?
To ensure that our customers, communities, and employees remain safe, it is important for Peoples to maintain the Right of Ways to provide easy, safe access to our pipelines.
