Development Services

The Development Services Division (DSD) is dedicated to assisting customers in obtaining reliable water and sewer service. We strive to accomplish this in a timely, cost-effective and friendly manner. DSD is also committed to minimizing impacts to the environment, while still providing this level of service.

DSG works closely with homeowners and developers in the planning, design, and administration of water and sewer main extensions. This includes extensions to single homes and homes with failing wells and/or septic systems.

Our Permit Services Section is responsible for the review and issuance of all plumbing, gas fitting and house connection applications, collection of related fees and charges, and review and processing of all onsite plans, service connection submittals, and applicant-built construction packages.  


Homeowners, please contact the Development Services Division at  301-206-8650, before starting any residential processes.
