ELLICOTT CITY, MD – Howard County’s Department of Public Works (DPW) will hold a public meeting on Tuesday, December 11 at 7:00 p.m. in the Belmont Meeting Room at the Elkridge Branch Library located at 6540 Washington Boulevard, to present the final plans for an Ellicott City pond repair project. This will be the third and final meeting regarding the project.
DPW’s Bureau of Environmental Services plans to repair the principal spillway of the stormwater pond near 5366 Briar Oak Court and 5300 Tangle Wood Court in Ellicott City. Modifications will be made to the Strawberry Fields pond to comply with current standards, lowering its elevation by approximately two feet. Construction is expected to begin in summer 2019.
The meeting will include a presentation and discussion of the final project plans, followed by an open discussion. County staff and the project’s design/build consultant, Century Engineering, will be on hand to answer any questions and gather public comments.
Those unable to attend the meeting who would like to view the plans and/or have questions should contact Mr. Brian Cleary with the DPW’s Stormwater Management Division at 410-313-6455 or email
