Dear Chairman Payne:

Re 13 George Drive, Property ID # Map and Lot 3/242

Do I have a septic system? If so, septic systems are covered under the Public Health Code. I don't have to upgrade my septic system until it fails.

If my sewage disposal is covered under Municipal Sewers, where Wastewater Management Districts are enabled, then my responsibility for sewage ends at the end of the sewer pipe leaving my house.

The problems for the WPCA are, 1) you do not own my septic system nor have you moved to claim it by eminent domain, and 2) it's your responsibility to provide me with sewage service.

Given the two (2) constraints above, how is the WPCA going to provision my property with sewage disposal?
                             Very truly yours,

                             Joel R. Anderson
