Councilman Marks announces start of stream valley improvements in White Marsh

Baltimore County Councilman David Marks announced on Monday the start of improvements to repair a stream valley in White Marsh.

Around August 27th, contractors will begin work to restore approximately 7,000 linear feet of the West Branch of the White Marsh Run North Fork. This stream valley extends along near the Southfield and Castlemill Circle communities. The waterway has become heavily eroded due to recent flooding.

The project will regrade stream banks with natural materials and, once construction is completed, the entire site will be planted with native trees, shrubs, and perennials.

“If you live near Southfield and Castlemill Circle, you no doubt understand the impact of flooding on the White Marsh Run,” Councilman Marks commented. “The banks are heavily eroded, impacting both public and private property. I am pleased that contractors will begin stabilizing the West Branch of the North Fork, helping propertyowners such as Doug and Pat Single, who I visited today.”

The contractor is Monumental Paving and Excavation. Construction should be finished next spring.

Other projects have stabilized the stream valleys in the Seven Courts and Carney areas, and Councilman Marks is working to secure funding for both eastern and western Towson.
