    This bit T Boone Pickens in the butt a few years back when he thought he'd divvy up his underground water to sell to DFW (his holdings are north of Amarillo) and run his water pipeline thru the easement for his windfarm-generation power lines.

    But.

    People living along the route he chose flat wouldn't sell to him, and unlike some courts, the districts in the vicinity wouldn't allow him to steal the land under public use condemnation/confiscation practices either.

    He ended up going out of the wind farm and water business.

    Couldn't happen to a nicer greedy SOB imnvho.
