BGE-Silo Point Phase 1 (ESD# 6186)
Tuesday Jan 11th, 2011
The Baltimore City Department of Public Works is accepting public review and comments for a request to waive1 Stormwater Management Quantity and Quality Requirements for BGE Project No. WMS 1882236, Silo Point Phase I Operation Pipeline Program.
Notice is hereby given that the public is invited to comment on the request by the Baltimore Gas and Electric Company, 1699 Leadenhall St, Baltimore, MD 21230 for a waiver of Stormwater Management (SWM) quantity and quality control requirements for the Silo Point Phase I Operation Pipeline Program Project. Comments on the request for SWM Waivers must be received by 5:00 PM on January 19th, 2011, to ensure consideration by the Department.
The Baltimore Gas and Electric Company is proposing to replace the aging existing cast iron and bare steel underground gas main pipelines with polyethylene (plastic) pipelines in the Silo Point neighborhood of Baltimore City. The overall limits of this project are Fort Ave. to the south, Lowman St. to the west, Nicholson St. to the north and Andre St. to the east.
In order to meet the 2010 Baltimore City SWM Ordinance requirements for the proposed improvements, waivers for stormwater management water quality and quantity control are requested. The project is a pipeline project which will not create any new impervious surfaces and all disturbed area will be returned to its original condition. Water quantity waivers are requested since the project runoff is captured and conveyed through public storm drain systems into tidal waters.
A copy of the Construction Plans and Stormwater Management Waiver Request may be obtained by contacting the BGE Project Manager Mr. Drew Westervelt by phone at (410)470-6710 or email at [email protected].
Questions or comments on the project waivers may be submitted during the review period by mail to Mr. Warren Ware, Baltimore City Department of Public Works (DPW), Bureau of Water and Wastewater, Surface Water Management Division, 3001 Druid Park Drive, Baltimore, MD 21215, or by email to [email protected].
