MetCom Schedules Public Meeting for Patuxent Park Water and Sewer Replacement

The St. Mary’s County Metropolitan Commission (MetCom) will hold a Public Informational Meeting to discuss Patuxent Park Water and Sewer Replacement Phase 4 Project No. 8161WR & 8161SR.

These projects are MetCom’s fourth and final phase of Patuxent Park’s water & sewer replacement and rehabilitation efforts that include systems on Midway Drive (from Saratoga Drive toward N.
Midway Drive), Franklin Road, N. Essex Drive (from Saratoga Drive to Midway Drive) Ranger Road, Enterprise Road and Hancock Road, located in the Patuxent Park subdivision. The infrastructure within the Patuxent Park subdivision was constructed by the U.S. Navy in the mid 1940’s and the water & sewer systems require replacement and rehabilitation.

The Public Meeting will be held on Wednesday, January 31, 2018, beginning at 6:30 PM at MetCom’s Administrative office, 23121 Camden Way, California, Maryland. The plans and specifications for the referenced projects may be inspected at the time of the meeting or at MetCom’s Engineering Department located at the address above, from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM Monday through Friday.

All interested persons are invited to attend this Public Workshop to ask questions regarding this project. Please contact the Metropolitan Commission offices at 301.737.7400, Ext. 301 or for more information, or if you cannot attend the meeting and wish to provide comment.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
