State board OKs $225,000 to rebuild storm-water pond

January 24, 2002|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

The Maryland Board of Public Works has approved spending $225,000 on a project to rebuild a storm-water pond in Oakland Mills, near U.S. 29.

The state money will provide the bulk of the cost of rebuilding the pond, off a short cul-de-sac called The Bowl, near Camelback Lane.

Work on the pond will "tear it apart and rebuild it," using modern engineering standards, said James M. Irvin, the Howard County public works director. A shallow marsh will be installed to help filter flow into the pond.

Howard's share is $43,750.
