NOTTINGHAM, MD—Residents and elected officials are upset after the Department of Public Works shut off the water in one Nottingham-area neighborhood on a hot day.
DPW shut off the water in the area of Seven Courts Drive at Hoban Court in the Seven Courts community in Nottingham/Perry Hall (21236) on Thursday.
“I received no notice of the water being shut off by Baltimore City contractors,” said Councilman David Marks. “This is now the third time the same area has been dug up, and weeks after the county laid a permanent patch. I am trying to ascertain the status and why the courtesy of a notice was never given.”
Spiniello is listed as the contractor performing the work, per Councilman Marks.
The National Weather Service says that highs in Baltimore County on Thursday will be right around 90 degrees.
Reports indicate that the water shut-off will last all day.
