Dominion Energy Virginia has more than 6,700 miles of transmission lines. This project replaces existing overhead structures with new, similar overhead structures within the existing right of way. In doing so, the line will be rebuilt to current safety and industry standards.

Dominion Energy completes an evaluation of potential environmental, cultural and historical impacts of the project. We will work with local, state and federal agencies to complete these evaluations and mitigate any impacts. Permitting agencies on transmission line projects typically include the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation, the Virginia Marine Resources Commission, and the Virginia Department of Transportation.

Commenting agencies include the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries and the Virginia Department of Historic Resources, among others. Our enterprise-wide environmental report describes our commitment to the responsible stewardship of natural resources and provides a wealth of information on environmental management and performance. We also invite you to read our Corporate Environmental Policy and our Greenhouse Gas Report.

Yes. Existing easement agreements will allow us access to private roads crossed by the right of way. The company, at its expense, will repair any private roads damaged by Dominion Energy or its contractors during construction of the line or during future maintenance. In addition, we will reimburse property owners for crop damage, and repair or replace fences or gates if we damage them.

Our forestry team will survey trees in the area to identify danger trees that need removal. Danger trees are trees outside the right of way, and possibly on your property, that have the potential to fall within 10 feet of the transmission wires or structures. Trees and tree limbs that come in contact with electric lines are a leading cause of power outages, especially during storms. The removal of danger trees is necessary to help prevent large scale outages in your community.

If we need to access your property, our forestry team or authorized contractors will contact you. We are committed to working safely and courteously on your property. If you have questions or concerns about the right of way corridor, please email or call 800-215-8032.

We do not anticipate impacting your electricity, but if there are any planned temporary disruptions to your power supply, we will make every effort to notify you in advance of that work.
