(ii) In addition to such map or diagram applicant shall submit a brief statement explaining which of such rights-of-way it intends to use or consider using.

(iil) The statement may indicate that, while applicant intends to use the proposed right-of-way at the date of filing of the application or amend ment or supplement thereto, it is un derstood that the actual construction of the proposed facility may require

routing deviations because of unanticipated obstacles or difficulties.
