Town of Hancock for Collection System Improvements

Recipient: Town of Hancock
Project Purpose: The Town's collection system was originally constructed in the 1930s and consisted of terra cotta sewer lines, ductile iron force mains, and brick manholes, which is now deteriorating, leading to overflows into the C&O Canal and Western Maryland Rail Trail, and sewage entering the groundwater. Funds will support the rehabilitation of the collection system to replace sewer lines and brick manholes and disconnect storm sewer lines from the sanitary sewer.
Project Location: Hancock, Maryland
Amount Requested by the Senator: $13,057,000
