The Department receives approximately 70-80 easement requests per year. Most of these requests involve utilities, such as, electric transmission/distribution lines, gas mains, potable water mains, transportation rights-of-way, or wastewater mains. The remainder are typically related to private access that serve private property (i.e. single-family home access).
