Partners in Stewardship

Proudly supporting local conservation efforts and using industry best practices that protect and preserve the environment.

In November, Transource announced a commitment in support of local conservation efforts to improve water quality in the Chesapeake Bay watershed in Pennsylvania and Maryland through funds and volunteer efforts (learn more about the partnership here).

Company volunteers and partners kicked off the partnership by planting 600 trees to install a riparian buffer along the East Branch of Codorus Creek at Spring Valley Park in York County, Pennsylvania.

Environmental impacts are at the forethought of Transource’s projects, from project input to in-service and maintenance. In 2017, Transource hosted 10 open houses and met with local groups to gather input on hundreds of miles of route options. That feedback was incorporated into the siting process.

During that process Transource gained a greater understanding local wildlife, environmentally sensitive areas and the important role streams play locally for community recreation, as well as their contribution to the ecosystem as part of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.

At Transource we look for opportunities to construct and maintain transmission facilities in ways that limit disturbance to the environment. We’re proud to support local efforts in conservation.
