Easement Limitations

Did you know that if Virginia signs off on the water certificate for the ACP and MVP pipelines, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission can allow the pipeline developers to seize the land of private citizens by eminent domain to bury these pipelines? Did you know that the landowners still have to pay property taxes on that seized land, often a 120′ wide easement, on which no tree can ever be planted, no structure can ever be built, and no fully loaded truck (including a fire truck) can ever cross? Did you know that environmentalists and Tea Party libertarians, conservatives and liberals, Republicans and Democrats have come together to protect our right to own our land and say no to land grabs for private greed, not public need?
