Tearing down Patapsco River’s Union Dam is on board agenda

The Board of Public Works on Wednesday will be asked to sign off on a $1.5 million contract that the state is using to tear down Union Dam on the Patapsco River in Baltimore County.

The Department of Natural Resources has been using the contract, given to K&K Adams, Inc. in Baltimore City, since late September. The state expects to get about $1.2 million in federal stimulus money for the project, said Jordan Loran, DNR’s director of engineering and construction.
