Master Plan Amendments and Review

The Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) requires all counties and the City to maintain maps designating service areas for water supply and sewerage, whether public utilities or private well/septic systems. The service areas designated on these maps must be located within the Metropolitan District and are required to be consistent with the Comprehensive Land Use Master Plan adopted by the County.

Water Supply and Sewerage Master Plan Amendments

Amendments to the Water and Sewer Master Plan maps may be petitioned for change under an annual amendment cycle process governed by the Executive Order of April 11, 1990. Annually, Public Works submits a staff report to the Planning Board with updates and revisions to the plans. Recommendations from the Planning Board have been added to the Planning Board Report to the County Executive. The amendments are scheduled for vote by the Baltimore County Council on December 19.

The Planning Board will hold a public hearing on the petitions regarding Amendment Cycle 40 of the Baltimore County Water Supply and Sewerage Plan. Please not that Petition 22-05 633 Earls Road (LaFarge Quarry) has been withdrawn from Cycle 40.

Water Supply and Sewerage Master Plan Triennial Review

Local jurisdictions throughout the State of Maryland are required by regulation to submit a comprehensive review of their water supply and sewerage plans once every three years. Baltimore County's most recent Triennial Review was approved on November 30 by MDE.
