Eminent Domain

Vermont Gas

Vermont Gas has started eminent domain proceedings against two landowners in Monkton in order to obtain easements for its natural gas pipeline.

A woman who received a letter about the potential use of eminent domain to make way for a natural gas pipeline says she and others met with state officials to express concerns about the plan by Vermont Gas.

Some residents in Vermont say they are being threatened with eminent domain because they are concerned about a gas pipeline that would run through their property.  The utility building the project says while such notices have been sent, eminent domain is a last resort.
