Re: Need input for El Paso and Hudspeth Co. ROE Condemnation writeup Monday, March 17, 2008 11:17:12 PM

As scary as it sounds I pretty much understood that.....can we write the easement to include perpetual access for repair of the fence(Hudspeth Co)? One other thing on a side note....eventhough we are not building the crossovers now can we have a seperate ROE request drawn up for them since we have the USACE real estate available? This will be important to show the fence and the crossover projects are seperate and hopefully get the EPCWID to sign that one. Thanks.

Took a while but still am not sure how to describe this....but here is a very very rough go so may need some reviews by the folks that know how to speak RE talk. After talking to Baker Eng, RE, and trying to define the land we are now looking at describing the land as follows: "That portion which lies 75 feet perpendicular to the centerline of the IBWC levee starting from (coordinates N&E) for X miles south to (coordinates N&E)." The 75 foot is based upon that in some areas the fence is not on the toe of the levee but will be build on IBWC property without impact to the water district. This language would apply to both counties. There are some exceptions, for example, may want to exclude that portion of K-2B which the levee and canal are far apart and the fence is not going to be built on the toe of the levee which we could exclude that portion in the description. We will also have to come up with verbiage to exclude the irrigation canal. I think that our RE and (b) are creative (6) enough to come up with the words. We are getting the coordinates and should have this to our RE folks tomorrow. Reason for gaining access is: "The Temporary Construction Easement is required to access both sides of the fence during construction." The only concern that I would like to bring up here is that after construction is complete access for maintaining the fence will be from the levee side only. Just a thought that hit me as I was going through this exercise. Sorry for the delay.

Yeah I got that already, (b) got with (b) too - I guess I had (b) on my mind last night, because he (6) (6) was all suited up at the (6) Giddens brief with us yesterday in DC. :). Sorry for any confusion... Regarding your question on what can be provided from RGV - we'll be working on a comprehensive brief covering all IBWC-related issues, so any more photos or diagrams with text explanations you can generate will help. There will be a meeting set with IBWC Commissioner Marin in first week of April. Thanks again - and yes, I'm up with a crying baby.... ----- Original Message ----From: (b) (6) <> Cc: (b) (6)

Notes from Sector and (b) (6) on negotiation efforts to date Hoping to get your input by Monday COB. I'm sure (b) (6) documents. 's team will be in contact soon if not already to prepare negotiator's reports and ROE
