Valve repair to disrupt water service

Residents of eastern Baltimore County to be affected

April 17, 2010

Residents of eastern Baltimore County can expect a series of water service interruptions next weekend as officials perform maintenance work on a 12-inch water main valve off Back River Neck Road.

To do the work, which begins 9 p.m. Friday, crews from the Baltimore City Department of Public Works will shut down two major water mains in the east county. The resulting water cutoffs are expected to affect residents of the Back River Neck, Middle River, Middleborough, Turkey Point, Hyde Park, Rocky Point, Breezy Point and Marlyn Avenue areas. Service is expected to resume by noon Saturday.

Officials are urging residents to fill containers with tap water to meet their needs overnight. They say that once service is restored water may be cloudy at first but should clear within minutes.
