ELLICOTT CITY, MD – Howard County’s Office of Community Sustainability (OCS) will hold a virtual public meeting on Tuesday, August 24th starting at 6:30 p.m., to discuss plans for a stream restoration project in Ellicott City.
 
The County plans to stabilize a portion of a significantly eroded stream located behind Dunloggin Middle School at 9129 Northfield Road, using wood and rock structures and bio-engineering planting to re-establish a more natural stream, reduce instream erosion and improve water quality. Upon the completion of the project, the area disturbed by the construction will be replanted. The project is expected to begin in November 2021.
 
The informal meeting will include an overview of the design, followed by an open discussion. County staff and the project’s design consultant will also be on hand to answer any questions and gather public comments.

This project is partially funded through a Chesapeake and Atlantic Coastal Bays Trust Fund Grant administered by Maryland Department of Natural Resources and the Howard County Watershed Protection and Restoration Fund.
