Developer ordered to stop work

A Carroll County grading inspector ordered builder Jeffrey B. Powers to stop working at his Piney Meadow development near Sykesville on Friday because of problems with sediment control fences.

The inspector had told Mr. Powers on April 30 to repair a silt fence and add more fencing at a building site on Long Leaf Pine Road. He was supposed to have made the changes by Friday, said Kristin Barmoy, bureau chief for storm-water management and sediment control.

"It was just an oversight on our part. We didn't realize the date was today [Friday]," said Mr. Powers, vice president of Powers Homes in Westminster.

The work will be done Monday, he said.

Mr. Powers said he has settled on 55 houses in Piney Meadow and plans to build a total of 81 there. The houses are priced from $150,000.

Since the beginning of the year, the county has issued 10 stop-work orders for violations of grading and sediment-control ordinances, Ms. Barmoy said.
