Major Improvement to Water Lines

In early October 2013, the Department of Public Works began renovating 90,000 feet of water line in Dundalk. Conduits which lie between North Point Road, Merritt Boulevard, Stansbury Road and Bear Creek are being cleaned and lined with cement to improve water quality and fire protection. This is a long-term project expected to take three years and cost $4.3 million. Crews have recently resumed work after a period of winter shut-down and have completed about five percent of the project.
