The NCDOT sought to acquire a .56 acre portion of a 1.13 acre residential tract for right of way purposes, with an initial offer of $126,000, which included the taking of the property’s septic system. There were no remaining suitable soils to support a traditional septic system. As a result the North Carolina property owners would have been required to install an expensive nontraditional septic system on the remaining .57 acre tract. A negotiated settlement was reached by which the NCDOT agreed to purchase the entire property for $284,800 in addition to paying moving and other relocation benefits.
