NEI repairs complete

WILMINGTON -- Repairs to the infamous northeast interceptor sewer line are finally complete. The city of Wilmington has requested that the state imposed construction moratorium be lifted. The improvements consisted of three major projects, the last of which was completed in the Greenville Loop Road area on Friday. Clean up work will continue there through the end of the month. The state Department of Natural Resources shut down new sewer hookups to the NEI last may.

Sewer Stink

It's amazing how more quickly government works when private money making is involved. Stopping new home construction (till the taxpayers built the necessary sewer system) finally got some area attention. Raw sewer in our waterways did not seem to do the trick. Lesson learned: Adequate impact fees, and adequate city/county planning. Development is good if it is responsibly planned, AND those that make the big money pay a fair share of the resulting infrastructure costs. Is this so hard?
