TO ALL LANDOWNERS ALONG THE PIPE LINE ROUTE
TN SR 340 AND TN SR 348
(FISH HATCHERY ROAD AND MCDONALD ROAD)
Please remember that when you are approached by anyone wanting to go over your property...that the map they show you supposedly representing the right of way across your property HAS NO LEGAL MEANING!
NEITHER DOES THE TDOT COMPUTER PRINT-OUT CALLED A HIGHWAY LOG REPORT.
THE MAP AND LOG REPORT ARE ONLY APPROXIMATE! THE LOG REPORT SHEET WILL USUALLY SHOW A 40 FOOT RIGHT OF WAY...MEANING 20 FEET IN EACH DIRECTION FROM THE CENTER LINE OF THE ROAD.
IN REALITY THE LEGAL RIGHT OF WAY IN MOST CASES ON THESE TWO ROADS
IS ACTUALLY 30 FEET (15 FEET FROM THE CENTER LINE OF THE ROAD). JUST REMEMBER YOUR DEED IS THE FINAL AUTHORITY, UNLESS YOU HAVE SOLD LAND TO THE STATE ALONG YOUR ROAD.
Who is YARA?
Yara is the company that we have been told will be using the same facility as US Nitrogen. Just a few days ago the biggest corruption trial in Norway began involving this company. They are accused of paying millions of dollars in bribes to local officials in India and Libya, some going to the Gadaffi family.
Do we want them in our back yard?
