Churchville (aka - "C-ville") is an unincorporated town in Harford County, Maryland, located between the county seat, Bel Air and Aberdeen where the Aberdeen Proving Ground is located. Because it links Bel Air and Aberdeen (and indirectly, the only other incorporated town in Harford County, Havre de Grace) Churchville was once known in Colonial Times as Lower Cross Roads. The town has agricultural origins and is known for its many picturesque churches, particularly Churchville Presbyterian Church, at the center of town. The population of the area is 2,818. Churchville was once home to the Archers, a prominent family in Maryland and U.S. History. Their home, Medical Hall, is still located in Churchville, and several of the Archer family are buried in the cemetery at Churchville Presbyterian Church.

What is utilities law?

Public utilities provide electric, gas, water or telephone service to customers in a specified area. Utilities have a duty to provide safe and adequate service on reasonable terms to anyone who lives within the service area on without discriminating between customers. Because most utilities operate in near monopolistic conditions, they can be heavily regulated by local, state, and federal authorities. Generally, the local and state agencies are called Public Service Commissions (PSC) or Public Utility Commissions (PUC). Municipal Utilities and Rural Electric Cooperatives may be unregulated though.
