PERRY HALL, MD—Baltimore County Councilman David Marks on Monday provided an update to the Forge Heights community on efforts to upgrade the Richlyn Manor interceptor.
The treatment plant currently experiences higher than normal flows during wet weather events, indicating that the piping in the area requires improvements.
The station is located at the end of Richlyn Drive in Perry Hall, at the western edge of Gunpowder Falls State Park.
The project will involve relining approximately about 4,600 feet of eight-inch sewer that should provide renewed strength and sealing of leaking joints.
Environmental permitting could take up to a year, meaning the project should be under construction in 2021.
“Barring any budget issues, this long-delayed project will finally address the deficiencies that have plagued this treatment plant for many years,” said Councilman Marks.
