Issue: Package Plants
To locate subdivisions with suburban-style lots outside of the Muddy Creek Sewer Basin requires the use of package treatment plants. Unfortunately, a number of older private/subdivision package plants have failed. These plants represent tied up capital and operating management attention; neither of which are attractive to developers. Operation and maintenance of a package plant by a homeowner’s association is expensive and usually requires professional consultation and assistance. Such plants are not monitored by the County Health Department, but rather by the State, which has limited staffing.
