In order to remain in compliance with new Federal Department of Transportation natural gas pipeline inspection and safety standards, Piedmont Natural Gas will be installing a new pipeline in the southern part of Davidson County. In order to help determine the actual route for the new pipeline, Piedmont Natural Gas will be conducting a land survey and assessment study. Listed below are some frequently asked questions (FAQs) from property owners about the survey and assessment.

How will Piedmont address the environmental impacts associated with the new pipeline’s construction in RLSNA?

Information concerning Piedmont’s approach for addressing the environmental impacts can be found in significant detail in our “Permission to Cross” application filed with the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) and in the exhibits attached to the request. That document can be accessed by going to Various aspects of Piedmont’s proposed approach include:

  • A limited number of temporary construction access points along the route with all such access points being restored to their current condition following construction;
  • All temporary access points and equipment travel paths will have erosion protection and sediment controls installed and maintained;
  • Movement and travel of all construction equipment along the route will be confined to the permanent and temporary easement secured prior to beginning construction;
  • Any permanent or temporary clearing proposed by Piedmont within the RLSNA will occur within the existing TVA easement where much of the land has already been cleared by TVA;
  • Absolutely no herbicides will be used in conjunction with any clearing within the right-of-way (TVA easement);
  • No burning is proposed or will be permitted;
  • Disturbed areas will be restored to original grades as found prior to construction;
  • Use of a qualified third party to monitor water quality and conduct analyses associated with the pipeline installation through RLSNA; and,
  • Enlistment of arborists and landscape architects to inspect and report on the health of plantings and guide caretakers in order to maximize the survivability of restorative plantings.
