Water, Water Everywhere

I spoke with Jeff Bailey, the township water engineer. As the result of a drought a few years ago, they passed an ordinance that said you couldn’t increase “impervious” on your property. In other words, if you put in pavement (which prevented water from being absorbed into the ground) then also you had to put in a “dry well” to capture that run-off. I assured him we weren’t adding any buildings or pavement, so we wouldn’t be affected.
