Pump for the Bay Contest

Pump for the Bay Contest Info

The Calvert County Environmental Commission needs your help to clean up and protect the Chesapeake Bay, and you can win a cash reimbursement or other prizes! To enter, either pump out your septic tank or upgrade to a nitrogen-reducing tank. Then mail a copy of your paid bill or receipt along with the entry form (included in the brochure) to: "Pump for the Bay Contest", Department of Planning and Zoning, 205 Main Street, Prince Frederick, MD 20678. The entry form can also be filled out electronically and emailed with a copy of the paid bill or receipt to Carolyn Sunderland.
