Re: E-M:/ New Meijer store draining water from spring-fed lake

I believe that this is part of a massive $53 million
sewer project that was pushed through by Macomb County
to facilitate sprawl into portions of the County that
didn't have access to Detroit sewer facilities. This
is a boon for developers and land speculators and sure
to drive out any remaining agricultural operations in
the area.


One has to wonder what county officials representing
the more established communities in Macomb County are
thinking when they OK these projects that will help
accelerate the decline of their communities.

Boardwalk for $500? In 2007? Ha! Play Monopoly Here and Now (it's updated for today's economy) at Yahoo! Games.
