3/30/17 Update - repairs completed

A sanitary sewer overflow from a Rosedale force main – discovered yesterday by Baltimore County utility crews – was stopped this morning at 10:35 a.m. Crews worked for more than a day to repair the 36-inch diameter line over Moores Run which discharged 411,200 gallons into local waters. The overflow was apparently due to the separation of two pipes which were joined at a ninety-degree angle; Baltimore County engineers are investigating the cause.

The public is advised to avoid contact with the waste water. The Baltimore County Department of Health will monitor water quality in Moores Run and Red House Creek and will issue, as necessary, water contact advisories on the Department's website:
