NEB puts Damage Prevention Regulations on hold again

The National Energy Board has had draft "Damage Prevention Regulations" in the works for several years.  The new regulations would replace the "Pipeline Crossing Regulations" which mandate a process by which landowners and other users of land seek permission from pipeline companies for operations within the 30 metre control zone area (on either side of a pipeline easement). 

The NEB has once again put the new regulations on hold, citing responses it has received to recent requests for public input.  The NEB plans to seek further input from stakeholders who raised concerns in recent submissions.

Read the NEB letter making the announcement at: March 8, 2011 Letter to All Interested Stakeholders.
