Power-company rights-of-way off limits to public

ROCHESTER — National Grid utility rights-of-way are private property where unauthorized dumping and trespass by motorized vehicles is unlawful, the power company reminds the public. 

“These rights-of-way are a critical part of the company’s electric and gas network,” a press release said. 

“Limiting activities within the corridors protects the public, avoids damage to company facilities and supports the reliability of electric and gas service. 

“These corridors are strictly for authorized National Grid personnel familiar with the facilities and terrain,” said Chad Martin, director of safety for National Grid.

“Dumping of waste and access by off-road vehicles is damaging to the rights-of-way and creates safety hazards for utility personnel and other authorized users.”
