ELLICOTT CITY, MD – A Howard County construction project to restore and stabilize approximately 1,475 linear feet of stream in the vicinity of 9129 Northfield Road in Ellicott City is scheduled to begin on or about Friday, June 30. These unnamed tributaries to the Plumtree Branch have been heavily impacted by stormwater and have eroded significantly. The project will include the use of wood and rock structures to reestablish a more natural stream, reduce instream erosion and improve water quality. Weather permitting, the project is expected to be completed by early September 2017.

The project is not expected to impact the flow of traffic in the area; however, signs will be posted in the area to alert pedestrians of the work.

This project is funded through the County’s Watershed Protection and Restoration Fund.
