Description

This program will provide for the replacement of failed storm drain pipes and culverts. The County's storm drain infrastructure is aging and many of the metal pipe culverts installed from 1960 through the 1990's have reached the end of their service life. An asset inventory with condition assessments has been developed to better forecast future replacement needs. Going forward, funding will be programmed for both systematic and emergency replacement of these pipes and culverts. Program scope includes: storm water pipe and culvert replacement of both metal and concrete less than six (6) feet in roadway longitudinal length; headwalls, end sections, replacement, or extension of culverts to assure positive flow of stormwater and channeling of stormwater into existing ditch lines or structures. Repairs also include roadside pipe and culvert end treatment safety improvements to eliminate safety hazards. This project will not make major changes to the location or size of existing storm drainage facilities. Structures greater than six-feet-roadway-longitudinal length are repaired under the Bridge Renovation Program (CIP No. 509753).

Cost Change

The funding level for this level of effort project has been increased to account for inflation and to add FY29 and FY30 funding to this ongoing program.

Justification

This program will address emergency pipe replacements of aging metal and concrete pipes that have reached the end-of-their-service life. The result of these pipe failures has been deep depressions, sinkholes, sediment build-up, open pipe joints, and metal pipe inverts to an unacceptable levels. Existing storm drain conditions are extremely poor. Repairs are needed to improve safety and reduce the potential for hazards and associated public inconvenience. Failure of a storm drain pipe will precipitate emergency repairs at much higher prices. Furthermore, this program provided funding towards developing an asset inventory of the storm drain system including pipe and culvert conditions that helps forecast future funding requirements.

Fiscal Note

Funding switches in FY25 and FY26 between Water Quality Protection Bonds and Current Revenue Water Quality Protection Charge to use available fund balance. Maryland Water Quality Revolving Loan Fund (WQRLF) from the Maryland Department of Environment (MDE) was replaced with Water Quality Protection Bonds due to limited eligibility of projects within this CIP under the revolving fund.
