Water & Sewerage Plan Amendments

Amendment Review Cycles

Applications for Water and Sewerage Plan map and/or text amendments are processed 3 times per year:

Amendment Process

When an application for a plan amendment is filed, county staff conducts an initial review to determine if all checklist items are met. If all items are met the application will be scheduled for a public hearing with the Planning Commission for a finding of consistency with the Comprehensive Plan. If the application is found to be consistent it will be forwarded to the County Council for a public hearing and final decision. If the application is approved at this stage it is referred to the Maryland Department of the Environment for final approval.
