Maine Land On A Lake, Building On A Waterfront Lot, Shoreland Zoning.

You are toying with buying Maine land on a lake, building on a waterfront lot so tell me about maine baxter park photoshoreland zoning.


Is the lot build-able means will it pass a soil test, septic system design to accommodate what you have in mind to construct on the lot?

A soil test with a HHE 200 site plan will layout the design, determine if you need a pump to reach a leach field or not.

And the leach field is designed to handle 90 gallons of per day per bedroom.

Many folks think the number of bathrooms determines the size, type of the required state approved leach field and septic system, for sewerage disposal.

No, it's the bedroom count. And while we are at it, what is the minimum lot size for building in Maine?

Without more land being bought for a leach field across the road to make more room.

With the side lines and set back from the roadway.

And the at least 100 feet from the Maine lake all happen in the puzzle piecing together your building lot for new construction?

Find out before you buy the Maine waterfront land and learn about those pesky development rules, regulations, costs.

And when you get the septic system design back outlined on the maine lake kayaker photofour page HHE 200 site plan, why not make you sale contingent upon the cost of this design.

Great information Andrew, there is so much involved one needs a true professional like Andrew Mooers. I never knew much about the ins and outs of septic systems.

Awesome tips about the waterfront and shoreland zoning!  You're blessed with such great resources and it's nice to hear your wise advice on being good stewards of the air, land, water, & resources.

Lynn ... Protect the resource or you lose it. Simple Maine logic.

Noah ... We try!

L Times Two ... Glad you stopped in. Have another piece of Maine blueberry pie. More coffee?

Regina ... I have an unfair advantage with all this eye candy and low low prices. When you get the word out, it becomes kid in the candy store exciting for out of state, out of country real estate buyers used to sticker shock where they live. It goes the other way, everything you know aboiut prices, divide by three, four!
