Public utility right of way.... What do I need to know?
The public utility wants me to sign a Right of Way agreement to let them put a sewer line down the directly thorough my property in Pennsylvania. I own a few acres of level land with a house on it. They want a to lay around 200' of sewer line directly through the center of my property, vertical with the road.
I would agree to them putting the line on the edge of the property, but not directly through the center.
What kinds of things should I be aware of? Should I be compensated more than the $1.00 they will be paying. Is there a law that says they can just do it anyway if I don't agree? Are there any structures they will not go under, like a concrete driveway or above ground swimming pool? I am thinking of altering the property so they can't go through the center.
Help please! I don't know what to do and we will be having a meeting soon.
