Little Patuxent Parallel Sewer Interceptor
Construction Continues

ELLICOTT CITY, MD – A Howard County construction project to replace aging sewer main in the vicinity of Vollmerhausen Road and Savage Guilford Road in the Savage/Huntington East area, is scheduled to begin on or about Monday, September 14. The project will include construction of more than 3,600 linear feet of sanitary sewer main. Weather permitting, the project should be completed by late December 2010.

During the project, Vollmerhausen Road will be subject to a brief closure while pipe is installed. Flagging operations will be in place to direct traffic as needed, and signs will be posted to guide motorists.

This project will require the use of underground explosives. Small, controlled blasts will be used to fracture rock encountered in the sanitary sewer trench during excavation. All planned blasts will be posted and monitored per Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR) and Howard County regulations. Homeowners within the impacted areas will be notified in advance by the contractor of planned blasts.

For questions or concerns about this Capital Project S-6175, contact Lisa Brightwell, Public Works Customer Service, at 410-313-3440, or by e-mail to .
