Sewer Inspection in the Area

This month Public Works utility crews will inspect sewer lines with closed circuit TVs and will inspect manholes in the Gray Manor sewer shed – the area where gravity sewers drain to the Gray Manor Pumping Station. The inspection is part of the County’s Consent Decree with the Federal Government to eliminate sewer overflows and protect the waters of the State.

Major Improvement to Water Lines

In early October the Department of Public Works began renovating 9,200 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 are currently on winter shut-down and have completed about 2 percent of the project.
