When land is deforested or stripped of naturally occurring vegetation and then paved over with highways, streets, driveways and parking lots, adjoining property can suffer significant harm.
Stormwater picks up pollutants including dirt, oil, grease and toxic chemicals as it runs over these massive, impervious surfaces, and then carries this pollution to neighboring, low-lying land. If developers neglect to install adequate erosion-control systems, stormwater runoff can cause sediment pollution, erosion and flooding on adjoining property.
In addition, streams, rivers and other bodies of water are at risk, especially when rain is scarce or infrequent. Pollutants accumulate on developed land and then, when rain finally comes, are quickly washed downhill and into creeks and streams.
At Stack & Associates, P.C., we are strong and effective advocates for property owners and others who are the victims of irresponsible land development. These are complicated legal matters that require years of experience and the determination to do battle in court.
For most individuals, filing a lawsuit is the last thing they want to do. But property owners have legal rights, and if someone upstream does something to devalue your property — a big-box retailer or chicken rendering plant or residential developer, for example — taking legal action is the right thing to do.
