    Description

    With the increase in various utility corridors continuing to find their way across the American landscape, more and more people are becoming concerned about their ecological as well as visual impact. This paper examines "linear utility corridors" in terms of those that transport energy and those that transport fuels, their various components, and the types of resulting visual impacts. A brief review of some of the impact mitigating measures currently being suggested and practiced is also presented.
