County Commissioners Give Partial Approval to WWTP

posted in: Blog, Home | 0

At their January 9th meeting, the Queen Anne’s County Commissioners gave partial approval to Centreville’s proposed wastewater treatment plant. The Commissioners approved the capacity increase thereby allowing the town to continue their engineering evaluation with the Maryland Department of the Environment. However, the town must come back to the Commissioners with an additional text amendment request for disposal of any proposed expanded capacity effluent.

The text amendment is as follows.

Motion to approve the Town of Centreville’s request to increase their overall wastewater treatment capacity by 458,000 from 542,000 gallons per day to 1,000,000 gallons per day, AND

to require the Town to return to amend the Comprehensive Water and Sewerage Plan once a more definitive plan has been tentatively approved by MDE on the means of disposal of the 458,000 gpd of new capacity effluent.

Additional information on the proposal and on CRC’s communication with the Commissioners can be found in previous posts.
