Yes I am hoping that my and my neighbors stream will put a halt to anything they plan but also wonder how far away from a stream/creek are they allowed to put in that sort of system.
I envision myself being surrounded by huge factories or neighborhoods where the houses are 20 feet apart from each other because they were able to install the sewer system far enough away and then the buildings put closer to my land. One of my neighbors has hundreds of acres and if he wants to sell that could very well happen I suppose.
My dream of being away from the city, out in the country may be slowly nibbled away as they continue to build and build. I'm too old to sell and change after putting so much into this property with the thought of having my own wonderful wide open space to finish out my life on and then pass it on to my son who has put a lot of his own blood sweat and tears into it as well.
Maybe I am panicking all for nothing, who knows...
With this thread, I have gotten some good ideas and will keep my ear to the ground on this issue so that I can, hopefully, stem the tide if it starts to go south.
