ELLICOTT CITY, MD – Howard County’s Department of Public Works (DPW) will hold a virtual public meeting on Tuesday, February 9th starting at 7:00 p.m., to present plans for a stormwater pond retrofit project in the vicinity of 10000 Junction Drive in Savage.
To improve the stormwater management pond, DPW’s Stormwater Management Division plans to install a new concrete principal spillway pipe and riser structure, as well as a clay core and filter diaphragm in the pond embankment. In addition, storm drain inflows will be realigned and riprap will be placed along the inflows to reduce erosion and the outfall to reduce erosive velocities. This project is expected to begin in August 2021.
The informal meeting will include an overview of the design followed by an open discussion. County staff and the project’s design consultant, Century Engineering, will be on hand to answer any questions and gather public comments.
