North of I-695 and the Route 40 Interchange
A sanitary sewer overflow estimated at 20,000 gallons was reported by Baltimore County contractors to the Department of Public Works today at approximately 11:30 a.m., in a wooded area 1100 feet north of I-695 and the Route 40 Interchange.
The overflow was apparently undetected for an unspecified time due to its location in an unoccupied area off Winters Lane. An eight-inch diameter sewer pipe was discharging into a nearby storm water retention pond which drains into a tributary of Dead Run.
Utility crews were dispatched and immediately worked to locate and to remove the cause of the overflow – a blockage to the sanitary line. They pumped the pond to contain the flow and to prevent it from entering the stream. The blockage was removed and the flow was halted at 6:25 p.m.
Health Department to Monitor Water Quality
The Baltimore County Department of Health will monitor water quality at the sites and issue water contact advisories if necessary.
