North Brunswick Sanitary District denying water line permits

LELAND -- Brunswick County may be growing fast, but the North Brunswick Sanitary District is worried about wavering water pressure. The Sanitary District is denying two major developments -- Mallory Creek and Brunswick Forest -- new permits to connect to the districts water lines. Both neighborhoods have recently been annexed by the town of Leland. The district is asking Brunswick Forest to pay for an elevated water tank to ease water pressure problems....which could slow development. Leland Town Manager Bill Farris said, "It could affect the number of houses built, the population growth of the community, the tax base growth, and in the short run it could affect our revenues for our budget." The elevated water tank would cost the developer close to $2 million. The Sanitary District says it will not lift the ban unless a deal is reached on building the water tank.

leland blows it again

Finally someone woke up and decided to plan the utilities before any more expansion. But the Town of Leland in there own IGNORANCE said OK to Brunswick Forest and came running to the rescue,now they are in the water business. Now we have water wars in Leland! I am a current North Brunswick Sanitary District customer and the Town of Leland's lust for money in the form of allowing out of control building (their #1 revenue source)is what caused our water pressure drop in the first place. Too bad they can't recycle the swamp water from the land they are allowing homes to be built on.
