Sewer work planned
Work could begin in mid-March on a $2.2 million construction project to fix deteriorating, blocked and leaking sewer pipes in Hagerstown's North End, officials said Tuesday.
The aging and cracked pipes have caused sewage backups in the North End, officials said.
The work is scheduled to be completed by Sept. 1, when the city's consent order to pump raw sewage into Hamilton Run expires, said Richard Parks, project manager for Acer Engineers & Consultants Inc.
Replacing an 18-inch main sewer line that runs parallel to Hamilton Run might require digging up several back yards along Valleybrook Drive, Brookside Terrace and Potomac Heights Avenue.
