Sewage Procurement

The Mayor and Town Manager authorized Synagro to pump out the wet well at the pump station, haul away sewage, provide labor and provide a backup pump until repairs can be made to our pump.  On November 21st and 22nd the Town received a significant amount of rain in a short period of time.   Unfortunately, the pump station experienced a pump failure causing the pump station to flood.  Due to this, MH#98 in Emmit Gardens overflowed causing sewage to leak into the land and nearby creek.  As a result, this created a need for emergency procurement in an effort to protect the health and safety of our residents as well as the protection of property.  As permitted by Town Code, 3.12.090 staff requested assistance from a contractor with expertise as well as equipment in this area.

Standby rate for the back-up pump is $1,575 per day.  As of day, the pump has been on site six days.  The pump will remain until repairs are made to our back-up pump.

Pump Station Issue

Due to the amount of rain that we received on 11/21/23 and 11/22/23, our pump station suffered a disastrous failure causing the pump station to flood. As a result, a large sanitary overflow occurred at Emmit Gardens. Per MDE, the property has been posted for 1 month as contaminated.

The location of this manhole is in an empty field.

MDE and Frederick County Health Department have been notified.
