Easements are granted to authorize a specific long-term use of public land. Such uses include rights-of-way for state highways, county roads, electric utility lines, telephone lines, railroads, oil and gas pipelines, telecommunication sites and similar uses.
Easements for the use of public land that provide for necessary and beneficial public services will be granted when conditions and requirements can be established which will effectively mitigate the impact on the natural environment, and when such uses are not in conflict with the primary use or purpose for which the lands were acquired or are being used.
Easements for utilities and public roads can be applied for by completing the form below. Applications must be submitted by the agency acquiring the public easement. Applications from private individuals will not be accepted.
