The Town of North Beach maintains its own wastewater collection and water distribution system. All houses and buildings in the town are served by both systems. Wastewater is collected in the town sewer system and is then discharged to the wastewater plant at Chesapeake Beach where it is treated before being discharged to the Chesapeake Bay. Potable water for the town is supplied by two deep wells and stored in the ¼ million gallon elevated storage tank near 11th Street. All water supplied to town customers is metered. The water supply is treated with chlorine as required by the State Health Codes. There is no other treatment except an agent used to reduce the iron problem (see information on brown water). The town water supply is adequate to provide fire protection through the system of fire hydrants that are located throughout town. The town has some capacity in its water and sewer system to serve undeveloped lots in the town.
