Perry Hall’s elevated water tank will receive a half million dollar fix.

The project began in January and should be completed by May. It is 60 percent complete.

Water Construction on York Road in Towson

During construction, which began in late April, the old 10-inch line will be abandoned and replaced with new 20- and 24-inch diameter pipes. The project, costing $3.2 million, is expected to be completed in April 2014.
