Background Pipeline construction



projects are expected to greatly expand in parts of New York as a result of the exploration of the Marcellus Shale natural gas field. Right-of-way (ROW) construction efforts can result in damage to soil quality along its course from construction activities like soil removal, compaction by heavy equipment, mixing of topsoil and subsoil materials, etc., thereby affecting the ability of the disturbed soils to sustain soil functions like plant growth, water infiltration and retention, support of soil life, etc. Soil quality sampling to monitor and assess the impact of construction can ensure that applied construction standards are adequate and / or suggest a focus for remediation efforts
