Facing compliance with Maryland’s new law restricting septic systems the Wicomico County Council will send out around 7-thousand postcards asking landowners to donate their property for a new designation that limits development.


Newly elected council President Matt Holloway told the Salisbury Daily Times that many people he talked to did not even know about the septic bill.


But they won’t be sent out right away.


The Council wants to work out the wording get a better handle on how much it would cost and wait to send them out until after the holiday season.


Last month the council called on large-scale property owners to offered up their property.


But the Salisbury Daily Times reports that only two have stepped forward who own less than an acre each.


The Tier 4 designation is the most restrictive and would only allow for minor subdivisions of seven or fewer lots on septic systems.
