LA PLATA, Md. – On February 23, 2021, Public Works technicians responded to a large sink hole reported near 1343/1344 Redwood Circle in Clarks Run II. 

After assessing the damage, it was determined that the main storm water pipe that feeds Redwood Lake had failed. 

Ultimately, this not only caused the sink hole, but the disbursement of corroded pipe materials into the lake.  The lake has since been safely drained to allow for drying, dredging and removal of these materials. 

Over the next 30-45 days, remediation activities will continue until installation of the new storm drain and excavation and restoration of the road and lake are completed. 

Redwood Circle and the lake will remain closed for the duration of this project.  We thank you for your patience and will keep you posted as further updates arise.
