Re: soybean field/transmission lines down

I have a similar problem with a pipeline. One came thru my farm in 2009. They haven't finished leveling, or cleaning up the ROW. Now 2 years crop lost. In addition, during construction, they ran into a groundwater problem . The contract said that they could exceed the ROW, but must pay for extra damages. They talked to me and received permission to pump water intio my field, but would compensate me.

They partially ruined about 6 acres of corn. I have sent numerous e-mails asking for compensation. To date, They haven't even contacted me.

This is arrorgant of them. They have company lawyers. The amount doesn't justify legal action on my part.
