Too little interest was generated when members of county government offered to make sewage collection services available to Westmoreland residents in Drum Bay, Tidwells and Glebe Harbor neighborhoods. On Sept. 21, the county advised prospective service area customers that the deadline for purchasing the system’s $3,000 connections would be extended to Nov. 16, resulting in a 60-day extension of the initially stated target date. Failure to purchase a connection by the that date would result in a connection cost of $4,800.
