Power line easements
My question to those employed by such utilities is by whom, and how are these easement locations determined?
How about if the word "alignments" (through undeveloped land) was substituted for "locations" in the above captioned quote?
Northwest Energy has them in their GIS system. I called them on one farm job I had. A fellow met me at the job site. He had a tablet that had all their power line easements on it. He lead me right to the easement and the corners it was tied to.
I have had great experiences with Georgia Power in relation to their easements and rights of way. It's been years now but all I had to do was call the Land Office, give them the Land Lot, District, and County and they would pull all the maps and deeds and make me copies of them. Saved HOURS of work digging it all up. Unfortunately I have seen too many "surveyors" just locate the edge of clearing and call that the limits of the right of way. Gives me heartburn just thinking about it.
