    Just wondering what poses the greater problem, an old, small seasonal camp with an iffy septic system or one of the many M mansions built around the lake, each one of which required multiple variances in order to be built?

    My father was on the Warren County board in 1979 when they were talking about the septic systems around the lake. It did not go anywhere then and probably won’t go anywhere now.
