Work to repair erosion at streams in City Park and Funkhouser Park is expected to be completed over the summer.
Work on Marsh Run in the north end of City Park is expected to begin in two weeks, said Rodney Tissue, Hagerstown's assistant city engineer.
"It's eroded. It's a maintenance problem. It's unsightly," Tissue said of the stream that runs from a storm drain along Walnut Street to Park Circle, eventually entering Antietam Creek.
Stormwater from about 800 acres in the West End drains into Marsh Run at that storm drain, Tissue said. The velocity of the water shooting out of that drain has eroded the stream's banks.
