The meadow off Long Green Pike near Baldwin Mill Road looks like any other in this quiet, pastoral corner of northern Baltimore County.But residents say there's a danger beneath it -- the danger they fear most -- development.The object of their wrath is a septic line that runs under the meadow to a commercially zoned building that houses a High's convenience store, a dentist's office and a dry cleaner.The septic line follows an easement through land zoned RC-2, with stiff regulations on residential development designed to preserve the rural character of areas such as Long Green Valley.
