Right of Way & Easements

Helix facilities are on District-owned land and within Helix's 741 miles of easements and right-of-way. Easements are interests in land we have acquired for specific use.

Our water system includes over 740 miles of pipeline, 16,000 valves, reservoir tanks, pump stations, and flow control facilities.

Private Property
Most of our pipelines are within public roadways. From time to time, we may need to install pipelines and related facilities on private property as needed to comply with design standards.

Access
Easements allow us the right to access, build, inspect and maintain pipelines and facilities on private property.
