Wicomico City Council Approves New Engineering Study

Posted: Updated:

WICOMICO CO., Md. - The Wicomico City Council approved an engineering study on Tuesday, to find the most cost-effective solution for the water contamination in the Morris Mill community.

The study is required in order to get grant funding or loans from USDA or Maryland Department of Environment for the new construction project.

The project is estimated to cost eight million dollars, but the council plans to refine that cost and bring it down.

Wicomico County's Director of Administration, R. Wayne Strausburg, says their best solution right now is an "urban services agreement" with Fruitland.

"Fruitland would extend water lines into that community, and the county would actually oversee the maintenance and the costs of those lines."

The council expects the study to be done by mid-July, and they hope to have a proposal by the end of the summer. Construction for the new plan may take up to 18 months.
