Utility Right of Way Encroachment Assessment

Orange and Rockland Utilities -- Orange and Rockland Counties, New York

CHA conducted a field survey of approximately 300 miles of utility right-of-way (ROW) corridors to locate transmission structures and identify potential encroachments. CHA field crews utilized high accuracy GPS and electronic data loggers to capture encroachment attributes and digital photos. The encroachment points were then analyzed in GIS, and a series of color-coded corridor maps were prepared to aid in prioritizing and mitigating the most critical issues. We also prepared an interactive GIS map with detailed attributes gathered in the field as well as hyperlinks to photos of each encroachment feature.
