    Default Gas Main Line Easement Violation

    My question involves an easement in the state of: Texas / Denton Cty

    What is the general rule of thumb with easements and Utility companies? I have a 5' utility easement on my Survey for my residence. However, if you measure from the property line to where DigTess has marked the Gas Main, it's easily 7' from the property line.

    This is using much needed space I want to use for an inground pool project. Do I have a leg to stand on in asking (or even more forcefully demanding) that Atmos move the main into the utility easement?

    Or would contacting them pretty much just be a waste of time?

    Thank you for any advice.

    We won't know the answer to that until you try it. That is where I would start.

    There may be valid reasons for the line being where it is, but Atmos will need to come up with those. There will generally be a public relations individual who will be assigned to cover your region. If that is the case, try to get that person engaged, as dealing with the company legal department from the start might be less "fulfilling".

    And finally, thanks for contacting the locate service before construction.
