Workers installing a new eight-acre stormwater management pond at Hagerstown Community College are almost finished, according to spokeswoman Patti Churchey.

The holding pond will include a soccer field at its center for use on dry days. Since the Athletic Recreation and Community Center was built, there have been drainage problems nearby at residences along Harp Road and at Yingling's Golf Center.

"This should resolve all of that," said Churchey. Construction of the pond began a year ago in the area, which was then wooded. It is on the northwest section of campus near the new amphitheater and baseball field. Churchey said cross-country trails will be included in the landscaping around the pond.
