    The company says it has reached agreements with about 70 percent of landowners along the pipelineís route from Chittenden County to Middlebury. It says itís in productive negotiations with another 20 percent of landowners and says about 10 percent ó or 20 landowners ó may not reach agreements.

    Vermont Gas said Tuesday that itís offering a neutral third party mediation process to those landowners to avoid litigated eminent domain proceedings.
