Easement Request for Previously Constructed Pipeline
Wheeler and Pickwick Reservoirs, in Colbert, Lawrence, and Morgan Counties, Alabama
Enbridge Pipelines (Bamagas Intrastate) L.L.C. has requested that TVA provide a 30-year easement over 2.6 acres on Wheeler and Pickwick Reservoirs, in Colbert, Lawrence, and Morgan Counties, Alabama, for a natural gas pipeline right-of-way.
In August 2001, the TVA Board of Directors granted a 30-year term easement affecting approximately 33.4 acres of TVA property on Wheeler and Pickwick Reservoirs for the construction of a natural gas pipeline by Enbridge Pipelines (Bamagas Intrastate) L.L.C. within existing pipeline easements. Thereafter, TVA determined that some of the pipeline had been constructed outside of the approved easement area. An additional easement of approximately 2.6 acres (0.9 acre on Pickwick Reservoir; 1.7 acres on Wheeler Reservoir) has been requested to cover areas where the as-built pipeline now resides, but was not approved by the TVA Board of Directors in 2001.
TVA is interested in your comments on this easement request.
All written comments on this proposed action must be received on or before March 12, 2009 and should be directed to:
