Bi-County Water Supply Main Alignment Study - Archive

The Clean Water Connection

The Bi-County water supply main project was first identified as a future need in the late 1960s. Since that time, WSSC and Montgomery and Prince George’s County planning agencies have continually monitored water system performance, water pressure, demand and growth patterns to determine an appropriate project implementation. Based on current demands and projections, the need for the Bi-County water supply main becomes evident by the end of this decade.The Bi-County water supply main will allow WSSC to continue to meet future water supply needs and expectations of our customers, and provide constant, reliable water for daily use and fire protection during peak use periods, droughts and emergencies such as Hurricane Isabel. Additionally, the supply main will provide water system redundancy in the event of an emergency or maintenance-related problem, such as a water main break. Public input will be an important part of this project. We will use public meetings, neighborhood briefings, web pages, quarterly customer bill inserts, fact sheets and media communications to inform and update officials, customers and other stakeholders about the project. The preferred Bi-County water supply main alignment will be selected with input from interested stakeholders. Please click on the following links to learn more about this study. As always, we want to hear from you. If you have any questions about this study, please go to the Contacts section at the bottom of this page and feel free to give us a call or send us an email.
