Building Lots in Walhalla with Creeks
There are a few things to consider when buying a building lot with a creek.
1) The house and improvements have to be 50 feet from the creek. EPA has ruled that any building that has to be treated to prevent termites has to be 50 feet from running water.
2) Trees and vegetation along the creek banks cannot be disturbed. Erosion is a factor in building so creek banks must be stabilized if you remove the vegetation from the banks.
3) Creeks are a great water feature and if you have running water, be sure to maximize your outdoor space to take advantage of the sounds of the water as well as having viewing areas to watch the wild life around the creek.
