What if I do not sign an easement?

Posted by:

Routing is done in order to construct the pipeline cost effectively. Going around your property increases the cost of construction. If you refuse to sign the easement, Project engineers will try another route. If another route is not viable, your neighbors may not be able to receive water service. If you refuse to sign an easement, and later want water, you would be responsible for the costs incurred by the SWPP in order to reroute the pipeline around your property. If there is no other route, the Project has the right of eminent domain but would prefer not to use it.
