Saturday Nov 12th, 2022
“As a follow-up to earlier communication regarding the sinkhole at the Montebello I Water Treatment Plant (Montebello I) property, the Department of Public Works (DPW) assures the public that the Montebello I plant continues to deliver adequate and high-quality drinking water.
“DPW continues to test throughout the system to ensure we deliver high-quality water to our regional customers. Some customers may experience lower than normal water pressure during this period.
“DPW continues collaborating with our state and local partners to make repairs. From the onset of this issue, DPW has communicated consistently with our regulators, namely the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE). MDE has committed to supporting DPW through the resolution of this incident.
“DPW and the entire Scott Administration remain committed to keeping residents and businesses informed and will provide regular updates as information becomes available.”
