I’m looking at a park that has orangeburg sewer lines (gasp!, yikes!, run away!). Yes I know this is very bad, and I should probably run, not walk away, however I’m trying to be creative and see if there are other ways to make this work that aren’t asking for a significant price reduction.
My question is has anyone tried to work with the DNR or some other governmental body on getting a grant to replace the lines? The park is held in a trust and the woman who originally owned it just died. Wondering if there is an angle where I can point to the environmental hazard (the city is on a big river) and work together with a governmental body to repair it.
Or, as sleazy as it sounds, would an anonymous call to said governmental body about leaking sewer lines spur an investigation that would result in the lines being replaced?
Any thoughts would help!
