Due consideration is given to the basic environmental requirements of the overall planning methodology of BPDB. Principal considerations are the amount of stack gas and cooling water emissions from thermal plants, and it is ensured that transmission line corridors do not infringe on any known protected areas. However, the non-mechanized farming practices in Bangladesh are generally such that once line construction is completed, active farming resumes directly under the lines, and often between the legs of individual towers. Recognizing also that there is a growing shortage of farmland in Bangladesh, an effort is made to redevelop existing sites wherever possible.
