Utility Work Update

Next week, WSSC will continue to connect the new water mains to existing water mains at several locations around the Town.  This work will involve scheduled shutdowns.  Affected residents will be notified in advance.

WSSC’s sewer contractor will continue to replace a sanitary sewer main on East Avenue between Bradley Lane and Ridge Street.

Thank you for your continued patience during the ongoing utility work. Please contact the Town Office at townoffice@townofchevychase.org or 301-654-7144 if you have any questions.




Guitar Concert featuring David Ziegele
This Sunday, June 10, 4-6 PM, Town Hall

Join us as Town resident David Ziegele plays several of his vintage guitars at this Sunday afternoon concert. This will be an exploration of fingerstyle acoustic guitar music in folk, ragtime, jazz, and blues styles.  Learn how the sounds that a Martin guitar made in the 1920’s and ‘30’s differ from other guitars made earlier or later.  Add in his acoustic slide guitar and we have a very enjoyable couple of hours to look forward to. Great event for all ages.  Appetizers, wine, and music -- perfect for a Sunday in June. Please RSVP to the Town Office by emailing townoffice@townofchevychase.org.
