THE DEAD
                                          BIRMINGHAM DRAINAGE DISTRICT
Prior to December 22, 1963, the Birmingham Drainage District could take under condemnation
any property it needed to fulfill its obligation to drain the area within its boundaries. Deseret Title
Holding Company implied it signed the primary contract with the district in 1981 to take care of its
property outside the district. The following document suggests Northland Park's lawyer, Robert W.
McKinley, knew that was not legal and wanted to draw attention away from the contract to take
care of its private project outside the dead district's boundaries. It appears he was  afraid the
dead drainage district would be liquidated at some point and wanted to regain any and all
property rights Deseret might have conceded (to the new owner of the district) in the 1981
document.  The Corps of Engineers had a laugh over this contract.
