Town Of Emmitsburg

The Town of Emmitsburg has been awarded a Green Streets, Green Jobs, Green Town's grant!

Screenshot 2022-06-24 152553
The Mayor and Board of Commissioners are pleased to announce that the Town of Emmitsburg has been awarded a Green Streets, Green Jobs, Green Town’s grant in the amount of $121,400.00 from the United States Environmental Protection Agency Region 3 and the Chesapeake Bay Trust.  This funding will be used in order reconstruct the existing dry extended detention pond through the installation of a sediment trapping forebay and micropool.  With this project, we will:

  1. Implement water quality controls capable of treating 7.96 acres of impervious area to address nutrient loading into the nearby Upper Monocacy River (with eventual drainage into the Chesapeake Bay). The proposed improvements will remove 57.94 lbs/year of nitrogen, 9.47 lbs/yr of phosphorus, and 14.51 tons/yr of total suspended solids. 
  2. Increase water quantity controls in anticipation of increased storm frequencies and intensities without increasing discharge flows.
  3. Create an aquatic and wetland fringe habitat within the existing footprint of the dry extended detention pond.
  4. Improve the biodiversity of the stormwater management feature through comprehensive planting and maintenance plans.

This project is necessary in order for the Town to meet its mandatory requirements under the federal Clean Water Act to improve water quality in Maryland’s streams, rivers, and the Chesapeake Bay. 

Tomorrow, Friday June 24th  Delay at North  Seton Ave.  Due to Mowing

Tomorrow, Friday June 24th , State Highway will be mowing the bank along North Seton Avenue, it has already been coned off and no one will be able to park along the bank until mowing is completed. Please be careful when traveling on North Seton Avenue as there may be delays and flaggers will be present.

Thank you,

Town of Emmitsburg

Stormwater Advisory Committee Update

In 2018, Emmitsburg was issued a Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permit by the Maryland Department of the Environment to manage stormwater runoff. This requires the implementation of six minimum control measures, as well as treating stormwater from 20% of the Town’s impervious surfaces through best management practices (BMPs). The permitting cycle is continuous and permanent. After this permit term (2018-2023), new permits will be issued every five years. This is an expensive unfunded mandate, and it is estimated that the impervious surface restoration requirement alone will cost the Town over $700,000 during this permitting cycle. Since the permit will continue indefinitely, the Town is considering ways to fund future MS4 projects. Emmitsburg has formed a Stormwater Advisory Committee and the Board of Commissioners has engaged the University of Maryland’s Environmental Finance Center (EFC) to conduct a stormwater financing feasibility study. Through a series of four public meetings, EFC will present the Advisory Committee with information about potential financing options to help determine the most equitable way to fund the Town's stormwater program.
