Cant they do this in a way that does not destroy the property? I can see the company putting the folks in a 5 start hotel while they install the pipes. But when all is said and done why can't the people move back in?

Unbelievable, no property rights in Fort Worth, Texas, USA? Haven't they been paying their expensive property taxes to the great city of Fort Worth?

Alternatively, I wish to believe by now such rich and aggressive pipeline players would have the decency to consider offering at least a million dollars for each of these residential properties in this case, since these precious lines will benefit all citizens right?

Ask these gas thugs how much they would want if a pipeline was proposed in their front yard, I bet they could prevent it from happening to them one way or another.

I side with the landowners. Who wants a gas pipeline runing through their backyard. Not me. Always hearing of them exploding and rupturing.

Oh there's recourse. Just not "legal recourse."

Chesapeake's goodwill advertising just bit the dust. Their we-want-to-be-good-neighbors routine is a crock. If they can use eminent domain for privately-owned malls, tollroads, and stadium in North Texas, you better just go ahead and hand over the deed to wealthy public utility companies!

i must have missed the part in the bill of rights where it says that a business entity can come along and do what it wants to a citizen and his inalienable rights without fear.

Oh well. The pipeline has to go somewhere. Glad its not on my property. I already got my signing bonus.

This is WRONG. People have a right to say NO when it affects their home and property. When a gas company can do something like this it's like what the gestapo did to the Jewish people.

it is not in the bill of rights, it is in a Supreme court decision.

Does anyone have any info on the effect of resale of properties that have a pipeline or 2 going across it? Any info on making it more difficult to sell said property?

Another thing, when they put in a pipeline and declare eminent domain on the right of way everyone forgets about all the temporary work area that they destroy. They don't want to pay anything at all for that!
