The Frederick County Division of Utilities and Solid Waste Management updated the Design Manual for Water and Sewer Facilities following input from the development and contracting community. A public hearing was held on October 4, 2016 at 1:30 PM at which time this document was presented and public comment was heard. Following the hearing, the proposed changes were adopted on October 25, 2016. The adopted Design Manual for Water and Sewer Facilities is effective January 2, 2017. For administrative and "grandfathering" purposes, those projects that are submitted prior to January 30, 2017 shall be reviewed under the previous Design Manual. Submissions on and after January 30, 2017 will be subject to the new Design Manual.
