    Various vegetation management practices can support the development of early successional habitats in which pollinator populations can safely develop. Iris Caldwell, program manager for sustainable landscapes at the University of Illinois-Chicago, knows the opportunities for pollinators on utility rights-of-way are significant. Start studying WA State Rights of way vegetation management. Learn vocabulary, terms, and more with flashcards, games, and other study tools. The Pennsylvania State Game Lands 33 (SGL33) research project in central Pennsylvania began in in response to public concern—particularly from hunters—about the impact of vegetation management practices on wildlife habitat within electric transmission rights-of-way.

Control methods applied to rights-of-way must be part of a sound weed management program that is sensitive to the environment. Herbicide application is one of the methods available to rights-of-way managers. This chapter discusses herbicides in general use for rights-of-way vegetation control.

It is not expected to be all-inclusive. Right-of-way vegetation management within the public agency varies from urban to rural settings. Rights of way vegetation maintenance activities are subdivided into the four basic control or management methods that cover the scope of integrated pest and vegetation management.

These four areas of control are cultural, physical/mechanical, biological. This MOU addresses vegetation management for electric transmission and distribution line rights-of-way (referred to throughout this MOU as powerline ROWs) on Federal lands. Authorities The non-governmental parties are authorized to enter into this MOU by consent of their member companies.

Quality right of way programs provide better and more stable ground cover and reduce the likelihood of soil disturbances that result in ruts. It is safer than mechanical maintenance and provides longer lasting results. Proper vegetation management of utility rights of way help to provide predictable, stable and less costly energy for everyone.

The Department has regulatory jurisdiction over herbicide application in rights-of-way areas. The regulations ( CMR ) contain provisions for the use of herbicides as part of vegetation management in support of the functioning and use of rights-of-way areas while minimizing the potential impacts of from herbicides on human health and the environment.
