What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? California
I would like to build a swimming pool in my backyard, but there is an issue regarding my neighbor's powerline running across my backyard just over where we would like to place our pool.
The powerline height at the boundary between our property and the neighbor's property is 10 feet, 6 inches.
The powerline at at the middle of the proposed pool is about 15 feet above the waterline.
The run between the power pole and the neighbor's house is somewhere between 50-75 feet.
The neighborhood was built 1960.
There is a 5 feet utility easement at the back fence (where the power pole is located). Does the powerline running across my yard violate the easement rule? Or, since the powerline has been there since 1960, the powerline now has it's own easement?
PG&E wants me to pay $5000 to move my neighbor's powerline if I want to build the pool.What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
