Water main replacement is under way in Fullerton

FULLERTON - Baltimore County has begun work on a $2 million water main replacement on Ridge Road, between Perry Hall Boulevard and Belair Road, that will improve water flow and eliminate pressure fluctuations for 118 homes and businesses in the Belair Road corridor.

During construction, which is expected to last until spring, access to Ridge Road will be limited, though motorists will be able to reach area businesses and homes.

The water main being replaced was installed in 1930 and has ruptured more than a dozen times in the past three years. It also has been unable to sustain water pressure changes caused by the new Fullerton pumping station, which began operating in 1999, county officials say.
