Continued from page 6 being proposed by developers and builders to wrench as much finan- cial profit from every inch of land that they own. Some of these parcels are as small as one-eighth an acre or less. What this means is that all the homes initially go on septic systems, as mandated by DNREC, then they will be re- quired to hook up to the sewer system for the environment&apos;s sake. The math is simple. Given the amount of proposed development parcels normally using septic sys- tem that now offer as an incentive at no cost to the builder or devel- oper, a new sewer system, so they can now double, triple or even quadruple the amount of homes on the same parcel. With the amount of proposals, the new sewer system - Water Farm II, af- ter being interconnected with Wa- ter Farm I, and the town of Mid- dletown, will bd maxed out as far as reasonable capacity. Then what, build anot.her waste treat- ment facility? The answer lies with county officials, with proper planning and controlled growth, rather than mayhem. Jesse M.
