We have a family farm, raising cattle, sheep, camels and a few thousand pheasants. The pheasants are released on our farm for hunters. We have had several problems with the right of way people. We pheasant hunt October thru March. They send there people on our farm without telling us. Yes, we might have three guys hunting pheasants and there will be some ROW people walking in the field. They usually do not give us any notice.
They go into our pastures and leave gates open letting livestock out.
A couple of years ago one of the pipes had to be worked on where it crossed under the road next to my property. The road was closed for maybe a week. When they left I went to clean up their trash. Off of the ROW next to a house was the area they used as the toilet. We counted 20+ shop rags that were used as toilet paper. Two houses are within 100 yds of where they relieved themselves.
A few days ago I got a letter fromEnterprise Liquids Pipeline LLC wanting permission to survey across my property. Also received a call from ROW wanting to clean up trees off of pipeline. When they arrived they mowed the ROW. It was warm season grasses with pathes mowed every 20 feet. They claim there was trees growing on the ROW. Not SO. They even mowed off of the ROW. In the fence rows where some big trees were cut by their crew, fences were knocked down, I will repair this morning.
Does the landowner have no rights to carry out his normal farming practices. They take bullying to a new level. When a pipeline person is using the restroom on my property who can I call? Does OSHA watch these people.
Rumor has it they are planning a new pipeline.
