Officially known as the “NEXUS Gas Transmission Project (Docket No. CP16-22-000) and Texas Eastern Appalachian Lease Project (Docket No. CP16-23-000)” to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), a 255-mile, 36-inch natural gas pipeline through central and northern Ohio, parts of Michigan and Ontario, Canada, has been met with resistance and protests by a handful of landowners.
Several years ago (more than I want to count), I was putting together a program on liability and limitations on liability and ran across the 1994 Nebraska Supreme Court case of Lawyers Title v. Hoffman Engineers and Surveyors, (“Hoffman”).
I am trying to highlight an area of concern that relates every day to us as land surveyors across these United States. My intent with this article is to turn the scope to the subject of discrepancies and related mapping processes.
