Sewer Rehabilitation Work

The Talbot County Department of Public Works will be resuming the Sewer Rehabilitation Project in the next few weeks in order to make improvements to the existing sewer system. This rehabilitation work is necessary to improve the sanitary sewer system serving your area, and your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

Construction activities could be scheduled in your neighborhood on multiple days for the remainder of the year, typically between the hours of 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Notifications should be placed on your door 1-2 days prior of any work directly affecting your property.

We apologize for the temporary inconvenience while the sewer system improvements are in progress and will do our best to complete the work as expeditiously as possible.

We also ask that you follow any “No Parking” signs to allow our trucks to enter and exit construction locations efficiently.
