The town of Burle is constructing a new water reservoir system that necessitates extensive digging in the yards of the houses on several residential blocks. The town managers have promised to reimburse homeowners for any fencing, trees, or large plants that will be removed in the process. Some owners have complained that, because of the expense of hiring people to replace what has been removed, they will still be financially burdened by the project.

Which of the following, if true, most strongly supports the claim that the water reservoir system will not be financially burdensome to the homeowners?

(A) The cost of hiring people to replace what has been removed from the yards of homeowners affected by the construction of the new reservoir system will vary greatly from home to home.
(B) One year before the actual estimated start time of the work, the town of Burle made clear to all residents that the construction would take place.
(C) The new reservoir system will cut water bills for homeowners in Burle by 60%.
(D) The properties affected by the construction of the new reservoir system are some of the most expensive in Burle.
(E) An independent committee of townspeople of Burle reached the conclusion that there was no practical means of constructing the new reservoir system without digging into the yards of some homeowners.
