Policy 2

Limit the expansion of public water and sewer outside the Growth Boundary in Rural and Agricultural Areas.

  • LU2.1 - Coordinate the provision of public water and sewer, as outlined in the Public Facilities Element, with the Department of the Environment (DoE) and the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC) and in accordance with the Growth Policy Map to ensure that water and sewer facilities are not extended beyond the Growth Boundary. The Growth Boundary should be reviewed on a periodic basis to assess compatibility with Plan 2035 goals.
  • LU2.2 - Coordinate amendments to the Growth Boundary with future updates to the Septic Tier Map and the County’s Water and Sewer Plan.
