A. Not allowed unless done through the local government to officially make the lot line disappear.
This may cost several thousand dollars.
B. Agreement between the property owner and the District that is filed with the county that would not
allow for separation, even when property sells.
26. If folks do not hook up at the time of installation, what happens when they want to hook up later? The District may
want to designate different assessments for those lots that do not currently have a structure to hook up to. When connect
at a later date, then they pay for the installation and connection? The District will need to look at this issue.
27. If I have three lots and want to keep them separate so I can sell them as three lots later, will I have to hook up
all three? Would not be required to hook up a lot that is undeveloped, but would still have an assessment. Assessments can
be different depending on whether on site improvements installed or not. This will be a board decision.
28. Can Ijust have a stub to the property line and then sell the other lots like that later? If there are no improvements
on a lot it can just be stubbed to the property.
29. If! combine lots into one now and only have one hookup, what would happen if! want to separate them when I sell out
so I can make more money? The idea is that you cannot sell the lot with service. But the reality is that County restrictions
will make it very difficult if not impossible to separate them later.
30. Is this decision about combining lots or hooking all up irreversible? Eric says yes, but things can possibly change
in the future. Also County requirements need to be considered.
31. If I want to be able to sell three lots later, I have to pay for three hookups now which will be an estimated $80
per month for each ($240) plus $20 for the one I will be using now as maintenance and operations for a total of $260 per month?
Yes, based on current estimates. But also whether assessments are based on on-site improvements up front or not.
32. If! sell my property after I have the sewer system, no new owner can then divide the property I have combined into
one piece with only one hookup? No, from a planning standpoint and as long as County requirements are in place and the board
33. Would I be able to add a cabin or garage apartment with water and sewer to the one hookup I have on the same lot?
Eric recommends no. Each home or dwelling should have its own connection, but that will be a District decision.
- Surface of the pump system would most likely be at grass level, much like a sprinkler control unit so that a lawnmower
might be able to go right over the top.
- If two homes are served by one pump system and one home has a generator, it should be that home that has the pumps electrical
- Need to consider who you may be sharing a pump with, but costs greatly reduced by sharing.
- Donna Lands expressed her concern regarding odor and hydrogen sulfite that can be present if a
system is not working properly. Her understanding is that when hydrogen sulfite levels get too high they cannot be smelled
and can cause serious health concerns. Andy explained that these high levels happen in anaerobic situations
in contained vessels. The Aeromod system is based on an aerobic environment.
- Andy anticipates having barometric controls that monitor temperatures, rain, and wind levels that will shut the sprinklers
off under adverse conditions. We will be very aware and concerned about the spray not migrating onto or across Hwy 211.
- By keeping a high level of aeration in the system we keep the nitrate levels as low as we can.
- With the Aeromod system there is not much storage once treatment is complete.
- Absorption beds will probably be sprayed during the summer season. Very little effluent goes
below root level during the growing season so the bed still "rests" before we return to winter use.
