Mountain Wine and Rob&Zoe, how do you deal with getting enough water, and disposing of sewage? I know these questions might be elementary, but at this point I know next to nothing about this whole thing.
Thanks in advance,
Mountain wine? lol
I have a fully installed septic system....amd a share of water from a well.....and actually applied for another 2.5 acre ft of water through the state. Its complicated as the developer is a not trustworthy guy,,and have been battleing him for years. But the State of Utah Public Utilities Commision has come through and set him and the records straight. ( Hopefully) As I have a couple acres and its mostly left in its natural state...I dont use alot of water unless the season is dry, which in fact has been now for the last several years.But last summer we finally got our summer rains and therefore lawn did grow...and it was good.
I have the water system turned off for the winter and the trailer drained and winterized.I added a larger water heater some years ago...on the outside...inside a shed like building( very small).
I have two water hydrants one of which is solely for trailer use and all underground now and one for outside water. Power was there when I bought the property...and have somewhat upgraded the power source.
Its alot of work, time and money as I am in very remote country,, or was.People like the area and are buying more lots now..thinking they too can have a peice.
The area is Boulder, Utah next to the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument...60 miles east of Bryce canyon and Capitol Reef to the northeast..another 60 miles. Splendid scenery and remote.
If ya have more questions..ask...
