Wednesday: Just as you suspected, the Gellen-Carpenter property is single-handedly destroying the Chesapeake Bay (9/8/10)

There's a whole lot of text cut off to the right of this photo of the letter just received, but this little bit will give you the gist.  Our total reduction of impervious surface, use of pervious pavers, and a rain collection system for garden irrigation, apparently does not count as far as the county is concerned.  They now not only think that their requirement for a 65' (or was it 85'?) x 5' drainage ditch requirement (a mere $17K) is justified, but now seem to be insisting that we pay someone to redesign it to standards published after our request for permits was submitted.  Oy.
