Bay Restoration Fee Financial Hardship Exemption -- On May 26, 2004, Senate Bill 320 was signed into law, creating the Bay Restoration Fund (“BRF”). The purpose of the bill was to create a dedicated fund financed by wastewater treatment plant users to be used to upgrade Maryland’s wastewater treatment plants with enhanced nutrient removal (ENR) technology. On July 1, 2012, House Bill 446 increased the mandated BRF fee from $2.50 per month to $5.00 per month, and required that BRF fee billing authorities develop a financial hardship fee waiver plan for low income households.
Residents of the Town of Chesapeake Beach may apply directly to the Town for an exemption from the fee due to substantial financial hardship.

REMINDER: Tenant Utility Billing Agreement
Please be advised that the Town of Chesapeake Beach Utilities Department does not allow a property owner to have a water / sewer bill put in a tenant’s name.
The utility bill will be sent to the owner of the property. It will be the responsibility of the property owner to see that the bill is paid. If you are a property owner who has tenants and are not receiving a utility bill, please call Town Hall at 410-257-2230 to have your address changed.
Reminder on Dogs -- According to the Calvert County Animal Control Ordinance, all dogs must be on a leash when not on your property. We have had a couple incidences recently where larger dogs got loose and attacked smaller dogs. We do not want to impose any additional restrictions on these pets, so we ask that you take special care to see they are restrained at all times. If your dog has a tendency to be aggressive, we suggest you consider a muzzle.
Reminder on Requirement for Trash Receptacles: According to Town Ordinance 200.3 (9) in part -- "No garbage, trash, or debris shall be placed out for collection except in proper storage receptacles. Where collection is from a sidewalk or alley, receptacles shall be placed out no earlier than the evening preceding the day of collection... Receptacles placed on a sidewalk or alley shall be promptly returned to the premises after collection... Storage receptacles shall be made of a durable material and shall be watertight with tight-fitting covers to control odor and prevent animal access."
