Model Ordinances & Best Practices

Model Municipal Ordinances were first created as part of a U.S. DOT Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration Technical Assistance Grant in 2010 and are updated by Gaadt Perspectives as appropriate.  As with any ordinance, each municipality is different and the approach taken to regulating transmission pipelines and their appurtenances should be tailored to the unique circumstances of each community.
