Default Maryland taxes S**T




Flush tax: In 2004, Maryland began charging homeowners and businesses
for producing wastewater. The funds will be used to help protect
Chesapeake Bay waters.

Maryland will add $2.50 a month to the sewer bills of residents hooked
up to treatment systems. It will also assess an annual charge of $30 to
homeowners with their own septic systems, even though many believe these
residents add little to the stream of pollutants that have damaged the
Chesapeake.

That's chump change compared to here.
On an average quarterly water bill of $ 127.00 I pay $ 45.00 for
'environmental protection and $ 25.00 for waste water management with
another increase due as we talk. The joke is, Halifax hasn't treated it's
water in it's 256 year history.
That will finally come to an end soon as construction is in progress now for
'stage one' treatment plants and collecter systems.

I wonder, not trying to start anything here, how much of that will
actually go to improving pollution in the Chesapeake.

We did something here in CT like that and we're about to increase some
Tax to bolster the money that was supposed to be spent on that
problem.

Later,

Tom

If they do not think their septic systems add to the problem, they are
either blind, or stupid. Clear Lake, Calif. finally installed a sewer
system around the lake and outlawed the septic systems. Lake does not turn
green with alge and smell bad as it used to. When you got near some of
those old septics systems, you hoped to be unable to smell for an hour or
so.

Exactly Bill. Over 1,400 folks visiting Put-In-Bay (
http://www.putinbay.com/ ) last summer got sick from drinking well water
contaminated from septic systems on the island.

Being on a private well and septic and in a neighboring state to
Maryland, I wonder how long before other states see the income from this
tax revenue and start making their people pay also. And considering my
home is in the Chesapeake Bay Water Shed, I'm sure WV will pick up on
the money making venture.
