Keystone XL Eminent Domain filings by TransCanadaThe first installment of the eminent domain map is now online. We have begun with the state of Texas and will add more eminent domain data as it becomes available. If you would like to contribute data to this map:

The county data for Texas comes courtesy of State Impact Texas. Statewide there were 102 eminent domain filings by TransCanada. Landowners typically fall into one of three categories:

  • Those who have begrudgingly signed so as to avoid legal action, and
  • Those who have been forced to give right away to TransCanada due to eminent domain proceedings.
