Leggett and Rice Break Ground on Clarksburg Historic District Sewer Extension

For Immediate Release: Thursday, November 1, 2018

County Executive Ike Leggett, Councilmember Craig Rice, Director of Montgomery County Department of General Services David Dise and Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service Chief Scott Goldstein celebrated the start of construction of the Clarksburg Historic District, Phase 1 sewer extension with a groundbreaking ceremony. The ceremony was held at 23365 Frederick Road at the corner of Frederick Road and Spire St. 

“Over the past 12 years, Clarksburg has grown tremendously,” said Leggett. “This project supports the residents and businesses in the Clarksburg Historic District and provides the public infrastructure necessary for the future Clarksburg Fire Station #35.”

The project will remove residents and businesses from dependency on individual septic systems. The nearly half-mile of underground sewer main will drain into pump station to be constructed by Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC). The station is located on the Miles/Coppola property, within the Ten Mile Creek Watershed.

“I am excited to get our shovels in the ground and get the Clarksburg Historic District sewer project started,” said Rice. “This project is an important next step in bringing sewer access and a long-awaited fire station to the community.”

The approximate $2.9 million project is expected to be completed in six months. Soltesz designed the project. Keller Brothers, Inc. is the contractor.
