Councilman Marks announces start of work to improve major tributary in Carney

Baltimore CountyBaltimore County Councilman David Marks announced on Monday the start of work to improve a major tributary in Carney that leads to the White Marsh Run.

Starting next summer, Baltimore County will restore approximately 2,300 linear feet of degraded stream from the stormwater pond south of Concord Court to where Upton Road crosses the stream. Contractors will use natural channel design techniques to stabilize the channel, using materials such as logs and boulders. The project is designed to improve water quality, reduce erosion, stabilize stream banks, increase the quality of natural habitat, and protect public infrastructure.

Baltimore County has allocated $307,000 for design and engineering, with another $1.08 million from the Maryland Department of Natural Resources funded for construction.

“Over the past four years, I have heard complaints about stream erosion in this part of the Carney area, and I am pleased that the county and state have allocated funding to improve this tributary that leads to the White Marsh Run,” said Councilman Marks.

“I would like to thank the Hogan administration for supporting this project, which will improve an area where I have lived and owned a home since 2004,” added Delegate Joe Cluster.

The Baltimore County Department of Environmental Protection and Sustainability will hold a community meeting on Wednesday, November 8th at 7 p.m. to discuss details of the project and answer any questions. The meeting will be held in the cafetorium of Carney Elementary School (3131 East Joppa Road).
