Carroll County Bureau of Utilities will be performing system upgrades and rehabilitation to the Martz Road Water Tank, located on 731 Martz Road, Eldersburg, Md. Martz Water Tank will be off-line for approximately five (5) weeks beginning Thursday June 21st 2018 for the first phase of this project. The remaining phases to finish the project will not require the Martz Water Tank to be off-line.
During this time period residents may experience lower water pressure than normal. In addition, conservation of water would be much appreciated and helpful for the duration of the off-line period.
Once full service is restored residents may experience cloudy water lasting up to an hour. Turning the cold water tap on and running water for several minutes will clear the lines. It is advisable to refrain from using high water volume appliances such as washing machines, dishwashers, etc., during periods of cloudy water or low pressure.
It is our Bureau’s intention to keep the off-line period shorter than five (5) weeks, weather permitting. We thank you for your cooperation and patience while this operation is performed. Please contact our office Monday through Friday between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm at 410-386-2164 if you have any questions.
