"Play your cards right on this one. I don't know what your specific parcel looks like in the big picture but if it were me I would not take that offer. They're good at playing mind games with people. They offered me 300/acre and…"
"I see. It's just that when you read the easement it's called a "frac pond" and they are required to do well testing all around the pond throughout the life of the pond. A fresh water pond would not need strict testing of soil and…"
