Dick Sells, Kent Island Estates, like his neighbors is on a septic system. He had a nitrogen reduction system installed five years ago at his home that is located on the Chesapeake Bay. Queen Anne's County is facing the costly option of hooking 1,500 homes to a sewer line. Sells says of converting to the sewer line, "I think it would be good for this community long term."
