2014 Triennial Review of the Water & Sewerage Plan
The update of the County's Water and Sewerage Plan is required by the State of Maryland every three (3) years. The 'Triennial Review' occurred in 2014. As part of this update process, the Frederick County Planning Commission held, on October 8, 2014, a public hearing on the Preliminary Draft Water and Sewerage Plan and found it consistent with the County Comprehensive Plan. The Planning Commission then transmitted a Recommended Water and Sewerage Plan to the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC). The BOCC held a public hearing on the Plan on November 6, 2014, at which time the 2014 Triennial Update to the Water and Sewerage Plan was adopted.
On December 1, 2014, the County sent the 2014 Adopted Water and Sewerage Plan to the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE), who requested additional data and information from the County and the municipalities regarding their water and wastewater systems. The County supplied all the requested information to MDE on May 4, 2015. The MDE then approved a 'Modified Water and Sewerage Plan' on June 2, 2015.
The reader will see certain portions of the Plan with yellow highlight. These areas indicate the revisions made by the County as requested (and eventually approved) by the MDE.
