I called the local plant today to ask my account balance and ask some questions about the lastest news reports and was told SCC was handling our problems. The documents I was told to look for on the SCC website showed that the board of directors for lake caroline is advocating that the water plant not be repaired. The SCC link I was given sited the reason being is cost to customers is cheaper. It is also noted that the SCC was going to remove control from the current owner and our board said no just make them pay the bill. When I went to pay my bill tonight in the customer notice box was a document from an engineering firm that showed possible customer costs with rebuilding water plant compared to upgrading emergency connection to permanent. anyone else see this? Do our board of directors know this is not the case, we will pay more by going on the county system. I want to know what our board is doing. We could have had someone else come in and look at what the current owner is hiding and maybe come up with a longterm solution what gives. I am also posting this on fredtalk to get some answers

There are some other places to post this question: The Freelance Star go to Fredtalk, then Caroline County. Also,there is a google group for Lake Caroline. Go to Google Groups and you can read things, but you have to create an account and sign in to post anything. Also, post this to the Ruther Glen section in this forum.

Never saw or heard of the info you just posted. We never hear anything from the board meetings. Maybe months after the fact, when they post the minutes or put it in the newsletter.

Any information this water company puts out needs to be really double sourced before you can believe any of it. Did you check on this engineering company's reputation? Getting an independent audit of the water company's assets financial or physical is like trying to get info from the CIA. He isn't giving anything up. Did you source any of the PAST hearings with this company before the SCC? This goes back more than 20 years.

yes I googled the company and they have good rep. I do not care about the company and the bad blood I only am concerned with our directors that keep making wrong choices. When they get a good person on the board they drive them out or tie thier hands so they can not make good choice. this report did not have the long incoherant ramblings of the owner so I do not think he knows its out. It also presented a choice that did not at up to 3 million dollars. Thats what he wants so this right. i am trying to post to fred its a long process. but will try google

The place is not worth the $3 million he is asking. The plant does not work, the pipes are 40 year old. It's like buying a 1969 Ford without an engine.

If caroline pines is going to have to pay millions to hook up to county water system and dawn had to come up with its own money for its water/sewer problems then why is lake caroline being offered the solution to its water system problems for less then $200,000?????????

Maybe its the county's way to get at the million gallons of water that can be drawn off of Lake Caroline every day?

Shady people on the board? Someone's own personal gain if the county takes over the water? There are people who really know, just won't tell. LC's little Peyton Place.

The board is helping sell the water right out from under peoples noses. Again, who benefits? people are paying monthly water bills. WHERE is that going? Why hasn't some governmental institution seized the company and it's assets? The SCC is useless and powerless and the county is going to TAKE the water, make it a resevoir that no lake residents will be able to boat on or swim in any longer. Property values are bad enough now, that will cut them to nothing then. Who wants to live on a lake they can only look at? Stupid. But remember, this is the county that doesn't want growth. Stuff like this will definitely keep people away from here. It's backwoods anyway. Still have to go to other counties to shop or get medical services or a decent meal. Don't look for a coffee shop either.

This document that i picked up and am trying to get a honest response from state that fixing the water plant would be cheaper then upgrading the temporary county connection. The whole purpose was for our board to do what our residents want and we want the plant fixed. the water is better and we had better pressure. The current owner wants 3 million to fix the then county is cheaper but.. this report tells us different much lower amount and owner seems to not want this out at all. This leads me to think that he wants extra for another purpose and this pushes me closer to the question whats he hiding... The SCC needs to take the company and really look at it. If taking over running it for a short time lets POA into the books then lets do it.

Word is the county no longer is willing to become the receiver for the water company because of all the BS the current LCPOA board has pulled and the non-stop arguing and calling in lawyers and consultants!

Water water everywhere and soon not a drop to drink?

We have a major problem in caroline with water and it don't look like no quick fix.How long has it been?I wonder why the planing commission is even thinking or talking about the Thompson property of a 1000 acres in Carmel Church.They want to build housing now the land needs to be rezoned from industry.We have alot of building lots all over that area of the county.My son took me riding last sunday I saw a sign that said no water in caroline over around rt 1 on the road.You people should be raising hell if the county could even think about building anything until they solve the water problem.Lake Caroline, Campbells Creek,Caroline Pines I wish you luck but being nice will not get it done.You folks need honest answers to your questions.

OK I live in Lake Caroline and have been doing lots of reading research and have attended 2 of the meetings in Richmond. One The Association is not trying to sell the water rights; what would happen is the owner would keep the water company he would have to buy water from the county. Two According from the last study Caroline has plenty of water and will be putting in at-least 10 more wells buy the end of 2012. The SCC is still looking about possibly a receiver of the water plant. There is an upcoming SCC meeting to determine what will happen.

This just keeps going round and round will never be solved this way.WHY CAN'IT BE A SOLUTION to this.I feel the HOA,the county, the state,and the scc and the caroline board are not being truthful.This did not start last week, it has been years.
