I plan to buy in GGE sooner or later. However, I talked to someone on the phone yesterday who warned me about not buying a home that is currently on septic in GGE because you will be forced to one day connect to and pay for the city line. Is this true? And if so, how much would it cost?

Thanks!

There are no plans for sewer in GG Estates.

Don't worry about it.

I understand septic is designed for like 20-25 yrs. (so I have read) So what do plan for? Just making a new one then? I would think it would be very expensive. Anybody know if they have impact fees for that?

That is about right. There are actually two components-the tank and the drainfield. I had to replace my drainfield in my old house. It cost $5K and that was in the 90s.

There are no impact fees for a septic tank. There are for sewer but you don't have to pay it unless you are in an area that you must connect to.

I also pump my septic every two years.

Thanks. Seems like they should go to compost designs. This is where rules and regs really don't keep up. 20-25 isn't all that long a life. Bound to be at least 15k I would bet now.
