Sewer Relining Project in Carney, Perry Hall and Towson

The Department of Public Works and Transportation (DPWT) started an extensive sewer relining project in Carney, Perry Hall and Towson in May (the Gunpowder Project). It’s five percent complete. More than 12 miles of sanitary sewer pipe will be relined during the next year and a half. The project will cost about $5.8 million. Most of the work will be below ground with minimal impact to communities. However, with any project of this scale, there may be some traffic or parking issues, and occasional chemical odors. DPWT staff will issue periodic updates.
