Letter to the Editor: Stay off my land
Many of you have recently been notified that your property is on the Preferred Route or Alternate Route of Dominion’s proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline. Now, you are probably being cajoled and threatened to let Dominion’s surveyors onto your land. Dominion has stated that surveys are no big deal, all of this is just a preliminary look around, and allowing surveying has no effect on you or your future property rights. Nothing could be further from the truth. Dominion has stated publicly that those who allow surveying have “signed off on the project,” implying that permission has been granted to locate the pipeline on their properties, with no further discussion or negotiations necessary.
