My question involves an easement/right-of-way in the state of: Indiana
The small, rural town I live in recently installed a forced sanitary sewer system. My neighbor and I are the only two people in the entire town that ended up with lift stations in our front yards. The lift station is approx. 10' from the edge of the road, in my front yard (well within the 22.5' right-of-way). The lid and electrical panel are above ground. This will lower the value of my property. Not one person from the town contacted me to discuss this. The only communication was a construction worker asking my wife where our septic tank was located. I have a 10' wide utility easement in my back yard that runs parallel to the right-of-way in the front yard. Furthermore, my septic tank is located in the back yard (as is the neighbors). I contacted the civil engineer that the town hired for this project. She was never given any information related to the utility easement in the back yard. I want the lift station moved to the utility easement in the back yard. The Town Board is not willing to do this. Legally, do I have a leg to stand on?
