Phone line gives water quality data

Throughout the summer until Labor Day, residents can call to get weekly water sample results as measured by fecal coliform. The number, 222-7999, may be called 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The information offered includes the emergency closing of creeks or portions of creeks; the average weekly results for 78 stations routinely sampled by the Health Department for fecal coliform; and a list of phone numbers that can assist residents in reporting water quality problems.

The phone system is an information-only system. Callers cannot be transferred to other phone numbers.

Phone-line information is available from sample stations on Rock Creek, Stoney Creek, Bodkin Creek, the Magothy River, Severn River, South River, Rhode River, West River and Herring Bay.
