STEVENSVILLE - Public sewer service will be available to the communities of Kent Island Estates and Romancoke in about six years if the project begins January 2005, according to engineers from the Queen Anne's County Public Works Department.
Personnel from Public Works, the county's Health Department, and others involved in the issues, as well as the county commissioners, were on hand at a public information meeting in the Kent Island High School auditorium on Aug. 27.
"There is no more serious issue this board will face this term," said Commission President Ben Cassell, referring to the failing septic systems in homes on southern Kent Island. Cassell told the crowd the meeting was just the beginning of a long process. "We are here tonight to tell you what we all know ... about running sewers down Route 8," he said.
The failure rate for septic systems in Kent Island Estates and Romancoke is 53 percent, according to tests conducted by Accurate Environmental Consulting, LLC of Easton over a five year period from 1999 to 2004.
