Angle Cheatham North Palm Beach Fix The Acreage's water problems The South Florida Water Management District says The Acreage must live with its water problems. I have lived in The Acreage for 13 years, and we have never had water problems until recent years after a million-dollar back-pumping station was installed to pump out water from The Acreage. We are not a water catchment area. If we are, why has the county allowed the land to be developed? When we had fewer homes, there were no problems. Now there are more homes and more septic tanks, and we have a higher water table. Couldn't this be a health hazard? I can't let my children outside to play because of the standing water. Who knows what's in that water besides the snakes and mosquitoes? Perhaps someone's runoff from their septic tank.
