Five homes on Kemp Lane are scheduled to be connected to the City of Frederick's water supply in late September, according to John Buck, project manager at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Baltimore District.

The connections will take about one to two weeks to complete, he said at a meeting of the Fort Detrick Restoration Advisory Board on Wednesday evening. 

For more than a decade, the Army has paid for shipments of bottled water for the five Kemp Lane homes. The Army Corps had found chemicals in groundwater near the homes, which prompted Fort Detrick's Army garrison to provide an alternative to their tap water.
