Easement Acquisition

Easement procurement is one of the first vital steps in the process of installing new water service or moving an existing waterline. Simply stated, without approval from private owners or the courts, a new waterline project simply cannot go forward. Our CUD Easement Coordinators are always willing to make themselves available for consultation with existing and future CUD customers.

Our Easement Acquisition Department are charged with these tasks:

  • Determining the most efficient route
  • Title and ownership research
  • Public relations
  • Easement document preparation
  • Execution of the document
  • Application for T.D.O.T. permits for water lines crossing state highways

During the process, the Easement Coordinators are oftentimes seen in the project area, speaking with homeowners – addressing their questions and concerns, inspecting the geographical attributes of the proposed waterline path and anticipating/addressing potential problems along the way.

If married, an easement requires the signature of both spouses (regardless of the name(s) on the deed).   Signature(s) must be acknowledged by a Notary Public.
