Environmental Access

Environmental awareness is important to Montana Rail Link, and it is our intention to cooperate, as much as possible, with any inquires to occupy railroad property for environmental investigation or clean up due to contamination that may have encroached on to railroad property.

Montana Rail Link is committed to operating a safe railroad corridor during any environmental remediation or investigation. Anyone inquiring about occupancy of railroad property for these activities will be required to submit a full disclosure of the purpose of the investigation and will be required to enter into a written agreement. All guidelines and standards are in accordance with local, state and federal regulations.

In order to obtain a permit for any type of environmental access an Environmental Access Application must be completed 60 days prior to the requested date of occupancy and the following information must be provided.

  • Location and Location Exhibit: Provide a complete legal description of the property including section, township range, city, county and state, railroad milepost, and a map showing its relation to RR ROW, track, etc. Provide a location exhibit showing the precise location of proposed work relative to any landmarks, structures, track, etc. You may also request a railroad plat map from the Real Estate Administration to assist you in locating the specific site area.
