Bad news if you haven't received a sewer hook up permit for your property in the Arrowhead Lake community yet: No new sewer permits will be issued until the the sewer company satisfies the DEP and gets their proper permitting in place. The Administration Office at Arrowhead Lake did not sound interested in divulging many details when I called them today, but I am going to go out on a limb and say that it has to do with the recent expansion of the sewer service area that the community had undertaken in the last several years. You may or may not know that they had been offering sewer tie-in rebate incentives to spur applications and, I assume, revenue. Now it could be a year before things are squared away, the permit moratorium is lifted and lot owners are able to hook in.
I found a few more details on another real estate blog but have not confirmed any of it. I recommend that potential lot purchasers and affected property owners contact the Arrowhead Lake Administration Office to find out exactly where they stand with all this. Obviously those trying to sell property or considering a new build in this Pocono Lake community will be most put out.
A hat tip goes out to Bradley for posting a question on Trulia and bringing this to my attention.
