Approche Environnementale De L'Entretien Des Emprises De Lignes De Transport (Environmental Right-Of-Way Maintenance on Transmission Lines)    (View PDF)

Yvon Lebeau F.E.

Abstract: Over 375,000 acres of rights-of-way under Hydro- Quebec power lines must be kept free of tall-growing trees and brush, from the 45th to the 53th parallel. Usual methods employed for vegetation control involve the use of chemicals but recent government regulations have obliged Hydro- Quebec to take a critical look at these methods. This paper describes the goals and methods developed to take account of growing public and government concern for the environment.
