    Hello, My property sits below an area that has recently been stripped of all its trees and vegetation to make room for a new housing development.Unfortunately, the developers (Harmony) didn’t see to upgrading the strom drainage around the new homes they built and my property is suffering as a result. I do know that the new houses above me are experiencing flooding as well. I had asked Ho Co to install better drainage on Forest Ave which they did, however, I don’t think the drainage system extends to cover the entirety of the new developed street. The dead end portion of Forest Ave, which is directly behind my property, is ultimately washing my property away causing basement and garage flooding.
    Also, part of my driveway is County land.
    I’d very much like to install a ‘v’ type concrete gutter alongside the driveway to direct water to the nearsest drain to help divert water.
    Please help alleviate the water running through these properties by installing significant drainage on Forest Ave.
    This is the Harwood Park section in Elkridge.
    Mind you, all of this run-off empties into a stream that is located below my property.
    Thank you so much

    Large cables protrude from the ground in several locations on Millers Way Drive between the intersection of Chapel Hill Drive and the end of Millers Way Drive. Some of the cables stick out more than 5 feet high. They need to be cut down and covered by boxes. The cables are the responsibility of Comcast but they will not/have not repaired after numerous attempts to contact.

    Crews filled this hole recently with topsoil and grass seed. Within a few hours, we had a heavy rain that washed some soil and all the grass seed away. Can you come back and replace the material but use a curlex blanket to stabilize the area until the grass seed takes?

    The land at the end of my street is owned by the county and hasn't been mowed in months. It is over grown and covering the sidewalk posing a safety hazard. My community is concerned about the condition of this stretch of land and we would like the county to please provide maintenance and routine upkeep as they do for other lands owned by public works. Thank you.

  • Sidewalk Concern Acknowledged
    Windharp Way Columbia , Maryland - Columbia
    A couple of places on the sidewalk have buckled and created tripping hazards because of Howard County's trees' large tree roots lifting up the sidewalk. Also poor upkeep of the sidewalks and surrounding lawn areas make it difficult to walk here without tripping on debris from trees and dirt washing into sunken sidewalk areas.
