PIPA Recommended Practice ND06

ND06 "Require Consideration of Transmission Pipeline Facilities in Land Development Design"

Practice Statement Whenever development is proposed on property containing transmission pipeline facilities, local governments should require that the submitted land development plans address in detail the steps necessary to safely integrate the transmission pipeline into the design of the project.

Audience(s): Local Government, Property Developer and Owner

Practice Description

Many states and/or local governments have a list of issues that must be addressed as part of the land development process, such as the availability of potable water, sewer, adequate roads, environmental constraints, etc. The land development process should require an analysis of how the development design can safely integrate any existing transmission pipeline facilities.
