Evolving Rights-of-Way Vegetation Management Standards and Practices: Update 2010
Dec. 2010
EPRI Product # 1019878
 
Abstract
 
Current regulations are shaping how transmission vegetation management is implemented in North America. Regulations are maturing and fines for violations of the NERC standard FAC-003-1 are becoming larger and more consistently assessed. Transmission vegetation managers must maintain a transmission system with no vegetation caused outages and do so cost effectively in an environmental acceptable manner that meets landowner and public approval.
