Chatham County is the eighth fastest growing county in North Carolina. Some 15,000 new homes have been approved for construction. But finding water for all those new residents to drink, and accommodating what they flush (not to mention roads, schools, and strip malls to serve all those people), has got the Chatham County Commission worrying out loud. Projected growth in Chatham graphs out to a need for some 15 million gallons of water a day.

There's talk of at least a year-long moratorium on subdivision development.

Bunch a socialists!

We'll be following with interest what happens down in Pittsboro. In the elections last fall, the "slow-growth" forces (i.e., the "socialists") won seats on the County Commission. The times, they may be a-changing, with the "growth-at-any-cost" forces moving into eclipse across the state.
