On April 5, 2002, the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (“Council”) published in the Federal Register a Notice of Exemption Regarding Historic Preservation Review Process for Projects Involving Historic Natural Gas Pipelines (67 FR 16364). Since then, several questions regarding the interpretation and application of the exemption have been brought to the Council’s attention. The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation has clarified its exemption from historic preservation review for projects involving historic natural gas pipelines by answering five questions that were posed after the exemption went into effect.
