The question remains: Do the property owners directly affected deserve to be compensated for bearing the burden of the larger community? According to the U.S. Supreme Court in a flooding case, the Constitution’s Fifth Amendment is “designed to bar Government from forcing some people alone to bear public burdens which, in all fairness and justice, should be borne by the public as a whole” (Arkansas Fish & Game Commission v. U.S., 568 U.S. 23, 31 [2012]). If you or a family member were impacted by the flooding caused by the release of water from the dam, you should consult with an experienced eminent domain lawyer to investigate your claim.  http://www.DeniedClaim.com
