My wife and I are considering some plots within St. James Plantation to build on in the next few years. This will be our retirement home. One particular plot at the north end of Players Club Dr. interests us the most but it is about a football field length away from the water treatment plant off Sea Pines Dr. I see that this facility accepts septic waste. Does anyone here have any insight as to concerns with being that close to the plant?

The wife and I are coming up from Cary, NC this weekend to check out SJP and the Southport area. We've been to BHI a few times so we are somewhat familiar but ANY insight into purchasing, building and living within SJP would be greatly appreciated. On paper it looks like a tremendous retirement lifestyle but there are always pros/cons.

thanks!
David

It's listed as a "wastewater treatment plant". So technically we are both correct https://files.nc.gov/ncdeq/Waste%20M...01-15-2015.pdf


Do you have any insight to concerns about building near it? That was my question.

No, sorry, I don't. I just wanted to clarify the nature of the facility. There is a big difference between a water treatment facility and a sewage (wastewater) treatment facility in terms of potential negative impacts to neighbors. Hopefully some SJP residents will have more pertinent, valuable and appreciated information for you.

I was certain I covered the nature of the plant with the following sentence. "I see that this facility accepts septic waste."

You'll love SJP! So sorry for my inability to cater to your needs.

LudaDave, You have already answered your own question with your last statement ..... I wouldn't do it ..... in addition, last year the residents on Players Club Drive experienced several "break-ins" ( quite unusual for St James ) kids ( drunk ) from the trailer park just a short walk through the woods, according to the Sherrifs Office..... just ask the neighbors.

That's two strikes for those lots at the end of the cul-de-sac IMHO.... there are so many others to choose from.

I'd be concerned of any possible odor coming from the plant

Thanks to all, I am definitely concerned about odor etc and was looking for first hand knowledge. "break-ins", well damn. I can see that since that cul-de-sac is pretty much out on an island relative to the rest of the development. Too bad, that would have been a really nice lot otherwise.

LudaDave,

Well, I see what attracted you to that lot... a full acre lot ( unusual ) looking at a pond and the golf course and at the end of a cul-de-sac for $85K......

but that has been for sale on and off for years...... along with the other two at the end .....

I sold one on another part of the golf course last year for $117K .....

there must be reasons.
