ELLICOTT CITY, MD – A Howard County construction project to stabilize the stream banks along approximately 200 linear feet of an unnamed tributary to Deep Run in Elkridge, is scheduled to begin on or about Wednesday, June 9th. To reduce the amount of sediment flowing downstream due to erosion, the stream banks will be graded and stone-riffle grade control structures and stone toe protection will be placed along the impacted section of the stream. The project will also help the ecological functions of the channel and floodplain through revegetation of the riparian buffer areas. Weather permitting, the project is expected to be completed by late September 2021.
The project is not expected to impact the flow of traffic; however, the sidewalk adjacent to 6737 Pirch Way will be closed to pedestrians for the duration of the project. Signs will be posted in the area to alert residents of the project.
This project is funded through the Howard County’s Watershed Protection and Restoration.
