    built the houses would have had to know so as to avoid subdividing and building too near the pipeline. Exxon must own the land and some easement to access. Not sure how far apart there have to be signs indicating there is a buried line and not to dig. Phone number to call for problems, etc.

    Doubtful Arkansas has the best requirements in the state real estate laws on disclosure. Easily buried in the pages of the mortgage docs. Blown off if someone asks.

    I am wondering about the specs a pipeline company has to meet about the care, repair and use of the line. It's 60 years old, they made changes some years ago to reverse the direction of the flow and started carrying the tar sand oil. More corrosive. How long would it take for something to go wrong?
