SITE AREA

The property is identified in public tax records as Map 93, Grid 2, Parcel 2 and is reported to comprise 10.89 acres of land.  The parcel fronts along the east and west side of Hoopers Island Road (MD Route 335).  Originally containing 22 acres, out conveyances have reduced the parcel size.  A survey has not been performed in recent years and the sellers will convey the site "as is."

Portions of the property appear to be wetlands, while several acres of fast land are improved with buildings.   A large part of the shoreline has a rip-rap bulkhead.  The property is believed to have a private well.


Well and Septic Information

According to the Dorchester County Health Department, permits to construct two septic systems were issued in 2000.  The septic systems were not installed.  Permits could be obtained again by making application for sanitary construction permits ($110 each).  The property has one existing well.
