FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Laurel – September 28, 2012: WSSC Commissioners approved transmittal of the proposed Fiscal Years 2014 – 2019 Capital Improvements Program budget to the Montgomery and Prince George’s County governments.

The FY ’14 capital expenditures are estimated at $642.3 million, which represents an increase of approximately $78.2 million from the approved funding level for FY’ 13. The primary reason for the increase is due to the significant increase in the Trunk Sewer Reconstruction project in order to meet the requirements of the Consent Decree. The increase was partially offset by the projected decreases in the Enhanced Nutrient Removal projects and the Blue Plains WWTP Digester projects as they move through construction.

The 2014-2019 CIP documents may be viewed at http://www.wsscwater.com/home/jsp/content/budget-index.faces.

Our vision is to be THE world-class water utility, where excellent products and services are always on tap.
