Many mobile home parks have closed down and sold out in Florida because of poor water or sewer systems. The health department finds they don't comply to newer federal environmental rules and they have to be shut down. Be careful what you wish for because then your mobile home becomes practically worthless.

The community itself is indeed responsible for the water mains.
They fix them willy nilly, instead of attacking the problem proactively.

Being a multi-billion dollar company, they certainly have the money to do whatever they need to do.
But some of the long time residents say that their plan is to sell it rather than fix the problem themselves.

I'm not sure what that would mean for those of us who own land and homes within the community.

As mentioned in my post above, there were five breaks within 34 days

So they shut it down without any compensation to those who own property and land within it?
That seems wrong.

Condemnation for unhabitable conditions.

But if you own the land in the community, as some do, wouldn't the owner - or various owners - be able to create a septic tank and dig a well if possible to make it habitable? Or put a water tank for shower and washing dishes and buy bottled water? Something along those lines?

Only if, and it would still be doubtful, a septic system large enough to handle the septage could be built, if the subject area for a septic site is usable for it, if the development can get withdrawal permits for a well, if an aquifer is available, if the local and state regulatory agencies allow it.

I'm tired and those are just a few of the hindrances I could think of quickly.

Thanks for your input.
I am thinking in terms of, say, any other home in the country-side (not city) where a home owner provides his own septic tank and well for water... I'm sure there are many such homes in Central Florida. (Well, I am pretty sure!)

That's a different situation than what you have and those people have to also adhere to various laws, rules and regulations in regards to septic and wells.
