Abstract/Contents:"Wisconsin's Invasive Species Identification, Classification and Control Rule (Chapter NR 40) went into effect on September 1, 2009. The rule established a classification system for invasive species and established preventive measures to help minimize their spread. American Transmission Company (ATC) was an active participant both in the development of the rule language and the associated invasive species best management practices (BMPs). ATC was a member of the Transportation and Utility Rights-of-Way BMP Advisory Committee. The goal of the committee was to develop BMPs that were effective and realistic in slowing the spread of invasive species. The advisory committee developed an Invasive Species BMP manual that was finalized in January 2010. ATC utilized the BMP manual to create an internal process for implementing BMPs during transmission line project design and construction. ATCs work involves a wide variety of projects from maintaining existing structures to the construction new electric transmission lines, all with varying degrees of environmental impact. The presentation will include several examples of BMP implementation and lessons learned on small and large projects."
