Could Worrell Water save B.F. Yancey?

According to this morning's Daily Progress, an Albemarle-hired expert has declared that B.F. Yancey Elementary School holds insufficient land for the jumbo-sized septic field it might need to expand.

They want to have "common area" so their fat kids can have someplace to play. Have they not heard of the millions of acres we have in our national forest. I thought that was our common area! We need to limit government on this power grab nonsense. WE need to have it back to 2 acres, enough for a septic field and alternative field. I don't want a tract house right next door to someone else!~

And what if besides Yancey Elementary School, these new developments get innovative and latched onto Worrell Water. Isn't it time to stop pouring money into massive treatment plants when more environmentally and financially responsible solutions exit ?
