Laurel, Md. – September 14, 2021 – WSSC Water Commissioners are holding their monthly meeting on Wednesday, September 15, 2021, at 10 a.m. The virtual meeting is open to the public via livestream from WSSC Water’s website.

This month’s agenda includes a vote by Commissioners to transmit the proposed six-year (Fiscal Years 2023-2028) Capital Improvements Program (CIP) to Montgomery and Prince George’s counties. The proposed $4.25 billion program will allow WSSC Water to continue protecting public health by upgrading aging pipes, plants and pumps across both counties to ensure safe, clean drinking water continues to flow to homes and businesses. Investments in water infrastructure also help create jobs and foster economic growth throughout Montgomery and Prince George’s counties.

Highlights in the proposed CIP include:

  • Water Main System Reconstruction Programs - $1.3 billion
  • Sewer Main System Reconstruction Programs - $596 million
  • Piscataway Bioenergy Project - $113 million
  • Potomac Water Filtration Plant Upgrades - $248 million
  • Piscataway Water Resource Recovery Facility Upgrades - $46 million
  • Water Storage Facility Rehabilitation - $36 million

The monthly meeting includes a call-in option to ensure interested stakeholders can provide input. Those wishing to speak should call in at the beginning of the Comments section, which begins shortly after 10 a.m. Callers will then be admitted from the “lobby” when public comments start.
