Piney Point water system meeting planned for today
The St. Mary’s County Metropolitan Commission will hold a public informational meeting today, Wednesday, Nov. 8, to discuss the Piney Point water system replacement project. The project will construct new water mains along Route 249 and Lighthouse Road to connect the existing water mains located in the Piney Point subdivision. These additional mains are required to loop the water service thereby improving system flows, capacity and reliability. The proposed alignment will utilize existing public right of way.
Rights of entry for this project will be available for signature to Piney Point residents impacted by this project.
The public meeting will be at the Harry Lundeberg School of Seamanship at 45353 St. George’s Avenue in Piney Point. The plans and specifications can be inspected at the time of the meeting or at MetCom’s engineering department office location from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
For more information contact the MetCom offices at 301-737-7400, ext. 301, or email email@example.com.
