Having second thoughts

Protection of property rights has been an important matter. A point of contention might exist between planned population growth supporters and the proposed enclosed water supply pipeline to the south county. If the pipeline is built, then what projected population increase will be met and at what year? Will the compensation be fair to those private property owners whose property would be unusable across the area where a pipeline is buried? Will there be any hypocrisy in the event of a new pipeline after arguments have reported losses in property rights due to extant endangered animal and plant species found in a biotic inventory?
