Mayo meeting

The Anne Arundel County Department of Public Works will host a public meeting at 7 p.m. April 4 at Annapolis High School, 2700 Riva Road, to present an overview of the county's recommended capital project to decommission the Mayo Water Reclamation Facility and pump septic tank effluent from the Mayo Service Area to the Annapolis Water Reclamation Facility for treatment. Other options considered and the supporting rationale for the plan will be presented.

Officials say the project, when complete, will provide additional wastewater treatment capacity needed to lift the building moratorium ordered by the county in 2008. The project also upgrades the treatment of Mayo wastewater to the new Maryland Department of Environment's required levels of Enhanced Nutrient Removal and consolidates the number of treatment outfalls into the Chesapeake Bay by eliminating the current Mayo WRF outfall.
