Boy, does this hit home. My mom's farm is in Clark Co., WA where cluster subdivisions were allowed until 1993. An adjacent farmer got his development plans in to have 45 one acre lots developed just before the law went into effect. OUCH!

Well, the county determined that the the water table was too low to support 45 wells so they built a ten-mile public water pipeline out to the development! Even though each home buyer has to pay a $3000 hook-up fee, it doesn't cover the cost. The tax payers end up footing the rest of the bill.
