A new Concept Plan would most likely need to be created, and the layout would will most likely need to change to accommodate changes to the tier map requirements and the new Storm Water Management requirements. Storm Water Management Design Plans that were drawn, would need to be changed to meet ESD requirements. All lots have wells and successful percolation tests were obtained, however, it is uncertain whether the county would require new design plans around the existing wells and possibly the septic reserve areas, if the buyer does not want to perform additional perc tests. It would also need to be determined that DEPS is going to continue to honor the percs performed on the site. Buyer to verify with Baltimore County all information provided here.
