Landowners report pipeline surveyors to police

(Continued)

In an interview, Connors said, “The aspect that bothers me is they probably got the information they wanted when they went on my property.” He said several other neighbors are also outraged by what they view as unauthorized entry to their land by surveyors.

Westcott said: “I told the deputy sheriff we feel bullied and violated by the surveyors coming onto our property. I’m a stay-at-home mom home-schooling my kids. My kids shouldn’t have to deal with this. We have an organic garden and goats. This pipeline is threatening everything we have worked hard for these last six years.”

Said Alan Daab: “I worked all my life to acquire a place like this, so I could relax and look out my window and see the mountains and the woods. This is serenity to me, and I don’t want it messed up by any pipeline. I don’t want their money. And I don’t want them.”
