SPRING 2015 AMENDMENT CYCLE

The Spring 2015 Amendment Cycle consists of both a water and a sewer amendment to the Hampstead Service Area

The Water amendment: revises tables (8A, 8B, 8E and Table 16) within the Hampstead Water Service Area chapter in the 2014 Carroll County Water and Sewer Master Plan. The updated information has been provided by the Town of Hampstead. In addition, the Hampstead Water Service Area map needs to be amended to show a category change for a portion of the Harrell property from Future Water Service Area (W-5) to Priority Water Service Area (W-3). This property is currently in the Development Review process and will be ready to connect in the near future. The Hampstead Planning Commission will be presented this amendment and asked to certify consistency with the Town's 2010 Master Plan at the Town's May 27, 2015 Planning Commission meeting. The County has been in close coordination with the properties and the Town of Hampstead regarding this amendment.

The Sewer amendment: includes moving the Hampstead WWTP discharge outfall to a new location as part of the Enhanced Nutrient Removal (ENR) upgrade scheduled to start construction January 2016. In order for this to occur, categories of properties as well Table 27 needed to be modified in order to make the County's demand/capacity tables balance. The County has been in close coordination with the properties and the Town of Hampstead regarding this amendment.

The Carroll County Planning and Zoning Commission Certified that both of the amendments were consistent with the 2014 Carroll County Master Plan at their May 19, 2015 meeting. The Board of County Commissioners were briefed on May 21st and authorized a public hearing regarding these amendments which is scheduled for June 11, 2015 at 10am.
