Question about Sewage and Septic Tanks

What is your position on sewer connection.I love the idea of sewers, just hate the growth that comes with it. I would hate for Nagshead to become like Delaware beaches, where you can't see the ocean due to large hotels blocking the views.

I am in favor of retaining the decentralized model of wastewater treatment that has worked well in our community. Septic tanks and other onsite systems work well with very little operational supervision. If there is a problem, it is limited in scope. I think the biggest problem with central sewage is the fact that when there is a problem, it's a big problem. And central sewer treatment is more complex, and so requires more supervision.
