Improved water plants urged for Ocean City

Upgrading two of Ocean City's four water plants and making other improvements could mean an increase in water rates for property owners. This week, a representative of Whitman, Requardt and Associates recommended to the Ocean City Council that two water plants - the one on Worcester Street and the other on 15th Street - be combined and that a new one be built on 15th Street within the next five years.

Equipment in the 15th Street plant is aging and will have to be replaced, according to the James Avirett, the firm's representative. The project would cost $5 million to $6 million, he said. The recommendations will be discussed again with the council in about one month.

Fall flea market, car show slated

The annual Fall Flea Market and Classic Car Show will be held in Ocean Pines Sept. 14. The car show will feature dozens of classic Chevrolets, which will be on display from noon to 3 p.m. The flea market will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and have about 60 vendors. For more information, call 835-8072.
