Notice of Rescheduled Public Hearing - Standard Sewer Flow Calculations for Public Sewer Systems

The Worcester County Commissioners propose to adopt a resolution establishing standard flow calculations for determining required capacity to serve residential and non residential land uses to be served by public sewer systems in Worcester County, Maryland.  Standard flow calculations for proposed developments will assist the County in definitively determining the number of Equivalent Dwelling Units (EDUs) required to serve proposed development and ensures that the sale and allocation of EDUs will not exceed the rated capacity of the wastewater treatment plant serving each community. The resolution includes a formal policy as well as a Table of Standard Sewer Flow Calculations in Worcester County, Maryland which are primarily based on State guidelines but also reflect local experience of actual flows generated by similar existing land uses in Worcester County and other nearby jurisdictions.  A rescheduled public hearing on the proposed resolution will be held on
