Has anyone heard of any problems (health or otherwise) in Cabot Estates, due to the property being previously owned by Jet Research Corp? I heard that one homeowner was digging in their yard and hit concrete. It turned out to be a large concrete foundation that was covered up with dirt. My concern is over jet fuel contaminating the soil, and leaching in to the water sources (i.e., ponds), below. Just wanted to know if anyone had any info on this. It's a beautiful subdivision, but it frightens me a little.

I am looking at Cabot Estates in Mansfield to purchase an existing home. I am concerned about the water situation in this area. I heard from one of the residents that he put a well in at his own expense in 2013 to become independent of SW water since the rates were so high. The well he installed supplies home and yard irrigation. I see a quite a lot of building activity in Cabot. Will the demand outpace the supply of water.
Any updates from local residents would be very helpful.

you best bet is to just drive through on weekend when people are likely to be out in their yards and just ask
they won't know about the water table per se but might know who did the drilling and you could contact them

I didn't know that about the jet lab--
we actually looked at Cabot Estates probably in 2005 and decided it was too risky plus the area was pretty isolated--roads were two-lane and slow traveling...
not that attractive to us

I used to live in Mansfield; I moved away about a decade ago. It has changed a lot in the recent years. Don't rely on any posts from a few years ago or from people who looked it over in 2005.

Go there and learn about it. It is a completely different place than what it was before.
