Water will be supplied by a single public well that will be monitored by a certified operator as required by state law. The homeowners’ association will be responsible for the well and other subdivision upkeep.
Kopp will need to maintain control of a 200 foot radius surrounding the public well through plat restrictions and covenants.
New water lines will be installed to service each lot within the subdivision from the well, which previously served the mobile homes.
“We’re putting all new water lines in, an all new pump house, everything in the pump house. The whole sewer system is going to be new. The road’s going to be new. So when we start out everything’s going to be pretty first class and we’re going to keep it that way through the whole thing,” Kopp said.
The preliminary plat shows Kopp also has plans to drill a secondary well on the property. Although that will not be certain until 15 homes are built. Should it be built, an operator will be required for the second well.
The final plat for the subdivision, which already has two lots spoken for, will come next. The first phase of the development will be the 11 lots on the western side of the property.
Kopp touts the property as the only subdivision that is located in Clinton County and not inside any city limits. He believes the location of the subdivision paired with the size of the lots has and will continue to entice prospective residents.
“Because of its location between Davenport and Clinton and the new railport going in out there and the large-sized lots and yet not too big,” Kopp said. “I think it’s going to be a great thing for the county and the people out there, really.”
