The following table applies to underwater crossings involving a disturbance of less than ten feet in width at the water's edge.
|Total Length in Feet, All Crossings Per Application|
|Type of Utility||0-100||101 -200||201 -300||301 -400||401 -500||500+|
|Pipeline||$237||$293||$349||$406||$462||$462 plus $56 per 100 feet or fraction thereof additional|
|Electric Transmission||180||225||259||304||349||$349 plus $45 per 100 feet or fraction thereof additional|
|Electric Distribution, Telephone, Telegraph, and Fiberoptic||124||147||180||203||237||$237 plus $17 per 100 feet or fraction thereof additional|
The length of an underwater crossing is measured by the number of feet of line between banks or shores. The license fee is determined by adding the length of all such underwater crossings on the same application and, using this total distance, selecting the appropriate column to determine the base rate. The license fee is the base rate plus $28 for each crossing in excess of one listed in the application.
Example #1. Electric distribution line application. Five water crossings.
|Crossing #1||40||Base rate||$147||(from 101-200 feet column)|
|Crossing #2||10||Plus||112||(four crossings in excess of one)|
|Crossing #4||22||License fee||259|
Example #2. Pipeline application. One crossing.
|Crossing #1, 650 feet||Base rate||$574||(from the 500+ column)|
|Plus||$ 0||(no crossings in excess of one)|
