Water Distribution Maintenance

To improve our water distribution system on April 6th   The Town of Chesapeake City will be inspecting valves between the hours of 9am and 12 noon. In the process of the inspection adjacent  fire hydrants will be flushed.  This inspection is important to ensure the valves are in good working order in case of emergencies.

Do NOT do laundry on the day hydrants are flushed in your area.  Flushing stirs up rust and you don’t want that in your washer. Also, if there is any discoloration in your faucet water, let it run for a few minutes, preferably from the tub spout, and it will clear up. The water is safe to drink.

If you have any questions, please call the Town Hall at 410 885 5298.


Delmarva Power Reminds Customers to Call Before Digging

Know What’s Below; Call Before You Dig

SALISBURY, Md. – April is National Safe Digging Month and staying away from underground utility lines is as easy as 8-1-1. That is the underground utility locating service number to call before you put a shovel into the ground.

Whether you are putting in shrubbery or installing a fence, deck or mailbox, you should call 8-1-1 before each job in order to prevent damage to underground electric and gas lines, avoid fines and repair costs, and keep you, your family and neighbors safe. By law, the underground utility locating service must be called at least two days in advance of any work you plan to do.
 
The underground utility locating service is free, and simply calling 8-1-1 will bring someone to your home or business to mark all underground utilities so you will be able to dig safely,” said Gary Stockbridge, Delmarva Power region president. “Calling 8-1-1 before digging will help you avoid fines and disgruntled neighbors if a hit line cuts off electric or gas service. But, more importantly, knowing where it’s safe to dig will avoid an accident that could result in injury or death.”
 
Be smart, dig safely and call 8-1-1 before you dig.

CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS

tree-clip-art-nTX4zyLTBHopefully you’ve noticed the new tree plantings within the south side bridge loops at the base of the Chesapeake City Bridge – we think the areas look great! And they are going to look even better because the State Highway Administration is providing the Town with some flowering trees/shrubs for additional plantings in these areas, however, the Town has to provide the labor to plant them! Hence, the CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS!

The planting date is Saturday, April 18th (rain date Sat., April 25th) starting at 8:00 a.m. In addition to these plantings, other beautification projects will be occurring throughout Town that day provided we have enough volunteers. If you are interested in helping beautify the Town please sign-up to volunteer on April 18th by calling Town Hall at 410-885-5298 or sending an email to Sandra ats.edwards@chesapeakecity-md.gov.
