To River Rat:
Please read Dieter Hantschel's post. The TLRSD is NOT cleaning up their effluent, merely taking that which was septically well handled (admittedly along with some that due to improper design and installation was not so well handled), and routing it away from the lake and into streams. Waste Water Treatment Plants will one day (soon, I believe)be directed to comply with the failed Clean Water Act. Of course, this will be another great enterprise for willing entrepreneurs. Unfortunately, the people who will be ultimately responsible for paying for the clean-up are the ones paying for the sprawling monster now - the homeowners being hooked up. Several thousand homeowners co-own this sewer district, yet they have NO SAY at all in the operation/policies of this entity.

In reply to Terry's question "Anyone still interested?" I would like to state that there are a plenty who are still interested... I have not stopped my efforts to expose what is happening across this state - each year has brought a little more legislation, Rep. Lehe has been successful in getting legislation passed that restricts the RSD from being able to just decide that they will include this group or this area of citizens - now, unless the Commissioners, Council or Trustee requests the RSD to come into an area, the RSD has to have better than 51% sign a petition stating that they WANT THE RSD TO SEWER THEIR AREA! Also, he was able to get law passed that if your septic system is less than 10 years old, they cannot force you to connect until it reaches 10 years of age....THEN during this past legislative session (2011 - effective 7/1/12) we were able to get legislation passed that increase that 10 year septic tank exemption for two 5 years extensions, and legislation that will exempt the citizen if they have 10 or more acres, and the big one is - that we have restricted the RSD's ability to foreclose on homes where they have added the sewer liens on property taxes.... NO LONGER will the RSD have the county tax office to do their dirty deed of foreclosing on the property for past due sewer liens which are labeled as TAXAS! After July 1st this year, the RSD will have to go to court to fight it's battle against the citizens instead of hiding behind the 'sold for taxes due sham!' We are still fighting this miscarriage of justice that is called a regional sewer district and will continue to fight until the citizens are given the freedom of choice to connect or not to connect - WE WILL NOT STOP FOR ANYTHING LESS THEN FREEDOM OF CHOICE! We are in America and although things are getting pretty scary, there are still Americans who will stand up for freedom - and personally, I am one and there are MANY OTHERS AT MY SIDE!
