Location: Illinois & Missouri
Client: Ameren

Ameren is the provider of electrical utility service in Illinois and Missouri and is committed to providing their customers with safe, reliable and efficient service. To fulfill this commitment, Ameren is expanding the easements along 7,400 miles of overhead electric transmission lines to prevent trees and vegetation from compromising their existing system.

Volkert provides turn-key real estate oversight and management services associated with the acquisition of the over 4,000 parcels associated with this initiative, and supports Ameren in a number of capacities to help ensure data is collected, mapped, and information is stored for identification and notification of property owners located within the High Tension Distribution Lines area.

Through our GIS mapping database, Volkert has enabled  Ameren to easily retrieve information in regard to property owners and provide the information to Ameren personnel for use in the field. Volkert’s staff also assists with project management of surveying, data collection, mapping, and planning in advance of needed maintenance work.
