Traffic pattern change at the Mason Recreation Complex

April 28th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

Leonard S. Fiore, Inc. has begun construction of the underground Combined
Sewage Overflow (CSO) Storage Facility being located in the Mason Recreation
Complex near the City’s Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP). The
construction project is expected to be completed by Spring of 2019 and will be
designed to reduce the frequency and magnitude of CSO events at the WWTP.
The City of Cumberland is advising that traffic patterns will be altered
throughout the Mason Recreation Facility in order to provide the space
necessary for this construction work. Parking availability will also be decreased
and certain facilities will be inaccessible during this construction time, including
the tennis courts, basketball courts, and baseball field. The boat ramp will
remain open for public use.
The City asks the public’s patience and cooperation in their use of the Mason
Recreation Facility during this construction time. This important project will
allow the City to capture sewage overflows and treat them at the Enhanced
Nutrient Removal (ENR) Wastewater Treatment Plant before being released
into the Potomac River, a tributary to the Chesapeake Bay.
For more information, please contact the City Administrator Office at 301-759-
