Liberty Utilities Fence Short-Term License Agreement and Permanent Easement
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The Conservancy is entering into a short-term license agreement authorizing Liberty Utilities (Liberty) to install a fence on Conservancy property. The purpose of the fence is to deter public access to an electric substation on the adjacent Liberty property (El Dorado AN 029-240-005) for public safety. The fence will allow Liberty to comply with the National Electrical Safety Code (2017 NESC Section 110, Table 110-1 for 69kV voltage). Liberty has designed the proposed fence to visually blend in with the surroundings to minimize scenic impact. The Conservancy is entering into a permanent easement with Liberty for fence maintenance.
