What Do Transmission Pipelines Look Like?
Transmission lines in Connecticut are found in rural areas, as well as in congested areas.
When first constructed in Connecticut, most transmission lines traversed open areas away from population centers. Since then, homes and business have been built near the transmission lines.
After the construction is completed, the mainline, valve and bypass will be buried and only the control facilities and blow off vents will be above ground. (Note the existing surface level to which the backfill will reach.) The entire above ground facility will be surrounded by a chain link fence with locked gates.
