I live in Tennessee. I purchased a new home in a new subdivision (which is still be developed.) I bought on the highest part in the area. Last month as I was driving home there was two retention ponds right down the street from me. It has been said these retention ponds we added to allow for storm water drainage. (The people who bought low were getting flooded)
Problem one: The land owner just so happens to be the Mayor.
My question is: Aren't we suppose to be notified prior to adding a wet/retention pond? If so by what means are we to be notified; public notice or mail? Is he suppose to contact a permit within the EPA standards since it does drain into a creek?
This retention pond was never brought up at any other town meetings!! I am on the agenda to address this problem in four days because now all we have who we smart enough to buy on high ground have stagnate water, no fence around it to protect from accidental drownings and it is ugly as pie!!
Help me so I may prepare to fight Goliath!!!!!! Brenda
