What you can do about the Pipeline

Take Action: You can help stop the permitting of an interstate gas pipeline in western Delaware County that, if allowed to happen, might in time, bring fracking to many parts of the county.

Even if fracking never occurs on your property, your lifestyle and property values will be degraded. By acting now you could protect your legal right for compensation.

What To Do When the Pipeline Rep Comes Calling

Andes Works! member Bob Lidsky owns property that is on the route of the proposed Constitution Pipeline. Here is his response to the company’s offer to buy a right of way — please read if you or anyone you know is near a pipeline route!

WHY EMINENT DOMAIN IS THE BEST OPTION

I own land, directly in the path of the proposed Constitution Pipeline. The property is quite hilly and has beautiful views. There is one small area near the top, which has a gradual enough slope to build a home.

Last December, Constitution asked for permission to survey. Their map shows the pipeline running directly through the only area suitable for building, siting a septic field, driveway and home. I realized that the pipeline if built would render my property, un-buildable, un-mortgage-able, un-insurable, and nearly worthless.

I Joined Stop The Pipeline and refused permission to survey. Over the next few months I learned a lot about Williams, Constitution, FERC, and the politics of pipelines and eminent domain.

Then I received Constitution’s offer for their completely one-sided right of way agreement. They say their limited-time initial offer is for 3 times the value of the right of way. Yet it represents only 15% of the value of the land. Their terms are ominous- a virtual minefield of legal traps. And attached is a thinly veiled, threatening letter explaining that if I do not agree they will take the right of way, against my wishes, by using Eminent Domain.

SIGN-OR ELSE! What should I do? Continue reading
