Water line project to start in August


A yearlong, $2.4 million water line renovation project that will -- affect more than 3,000 homes between Dundalk Avenue and the railroad tracks along Sollers Point Road in eastern Baltimore County will get under way in August.

County public works officials said that Heitkamp Inc., a contractor from Watertown, Conn., is to clean out the cast iron water pipes and line them with concrete, using a technology that allows the work to be done without digging up the pipes.

Water service to the affected Dundalk homes will be provided by above-ground pipes and hoses that will bypass those being cleaned. Officials said discoloration of tap water may occur, but will clear up quickly if the water is allowed to run.
