Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Does the easement document have an expiration or does it set out limitations of the use of the easement?
If there are no deadlines for terminating the easement, the law provides that the easement runs with the land in perpetuity (forever). The only real exception is if the easement is abandoned by the utility company. If that is not the case, then the easement is likely still in effect and enforceable.
Here's a good link that outlines how easements are terminated under Texas law: http://www.thetaylorfirm.com/pdf/easementsinTexas.pdf (easement information begins on page 16). Thus, your only real hope to stop the easement's use is if the document has a termination date.
