Does the water district have the right to add onto an existing water line on your property if they do not have an easement? We paid to connect onto the water district and they laid a line onto our property and installed a meter, but they never had us sign an easement for the line they laid. Now our neighbors want to get connected as well and the district wants to connect to the line in our backyard. I asked what we would be paid for damages and they said nothing. In Kansas, can they legally add onto the existing line without an easement?
