Many suburban municipalities are requiring sprinkler systems in larger homes where hydrants aren't available. 10,000 to 30,000 gallon water tanks are also installed in many of these sub-divisions (at the cost of the developer and, indirectly, the homeowner who buys the home) in order to curb this potential problem.

Hey, it's a risk you take living outside of the city. You know how it goes: "Don't live in flood plain and expect your basement to be dry."

It's also a risk made more perilous by lowered developer and municipal requirements prompted in part by the tax freeze crowd. There's always a price to pay.

"lowered developer and municipal requirements"....tell that to Carstenson.

There always is a price to pay. Agreed.
