Mayor of Perry Hall

Roy, WA

Someone in the County should be accountable. When the Joppa widening
project was on the drawing board, area residents were assured a new water main,(1988) yet, to "save money"-
County inspectors "saved" 300 thousand
by covering over a 60 year old water line. Despite warnings from the paving company (Benhoff) of frequent breaks from a brittle pipeline, the old main was paved over, and since then, at least twenty (20) breaks have occured
between Bel Air & Harford Rds, probably costing State & City Govts several million dollars, not to mention the inconvenience to area residents--LET THE TRUTH BE KNOWN!!!
