27 Jul New development is nearby a waste facility and almost 50% of its lots (85 lots) on one side have “sewer easement” clauses in their contracts, is this something to worry about?
I'll withhold the name to prevent negative search karma for what may otherwise be a great new development, but I am looking at a property that is right across a major road (with significant distance between, maybe 0.1-0.3mi) between it and a relatively modern landfill and solid waste recycling management center.
The north western half of the development (85 lots) on the road side are all under sewer easement, but the southeast half is not. I don't think it's normal to have this many continguous easements on one side so this leads me to believe that there may be some kind of large waste distribution infrastructure running beneath half the development.
Is something like this cause for concern and/or should this be subject to more stringent environmental testing and regulation?
I'm second guessing my paranoia level here but I grew up watching stuff like movies about The Love canal, so….
