St. Mary's Adopts Revised Comprehensive Water and Sewerage Plan

LEONARDTOWN, Md. (Feb. 2, 2008)—The Board of Commissioners for St. Mary’s County on Tuesday voted to approve the revised Comprehensive Water and Sewerage Plan. The vote follows a review of the Plan by the County’s Planning Commission, which recommended approval at its Oct. 22 meeting. The Board of County Commissioners held a public hearing on the Plan on Nov. 20, 2007.

The last complete revision of the Comprehensive Water and Sewer Plan was adopted in 1993 and several individual amendments have been made over the ensuing years. Following the adoption of the 2002 Comprehensive Land Use Plan, a revised Comprehensive Water and Sewerage Plan was presented in 2003, but was tabled until final review of the Lexington Park Development District Plan (LPDD).

The LPDD plan was adopted in 2005 and a new draft Water and Sewerage Plan was prepared by a team comprising of staff from the County’s Land Use and Growth Management Department, the Metropolitan Commission, the St. Mary’s County Health Department and Leonardtown Municipal Government and was then presented to the Planning Commission for a hearing and recommendation.

The revised plan contains new water and sewerage service area maps and has aligned some service areas to implement the growth management concepts from the 2002 Comprehensive Plan. It also inventories community water and sewer systems which provide the basis for planned expansions.

Copies of the newly adopted plan will be available after February 1, 2008 at the three St. Mary’s County Public Libraries or at the County’s Public Information Office in Leonardtown. The plan will also be available on the County Web Page and on Compact Discs available upon request from the Land Use and Growth Management Department.
