    Iowa judge sets hearing on CO2 pipeline company’s injunction request | State and Regional News

    SIOUX CITY – Carbon dioxide pipeline developers will have a chance to argue next week for a judge’s order to prevent two Woodbury County landowners from interfering with attempts to enter their land to survey the proposed pipeline route.

Not only was it missing a kitchen (the prior buyer had gutted it before losing steam and putting the house back on the market), there wasn’t any plumbing. “We discovered that after we bought it, so the reno was even more significant than imagined!” Becker says. Plus, the house was infested with rodents.
