10,000 gallons of wastewater foul county creek

September 14, 2004|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Anne Arundel County residents were warned away from a section of the South River yesterday after 10,000 gallons of wastewater flowed into Granville Creek because of a valve failure Sunday evening.

The spill occurred at Woodside and Meadow Roads, county officials said. Crews repaired the valve Sunday night. County health officials said people should avoid contact with water in Granville Creek and in the South River near the Sylvan Shores community. Those areas will remain closed until tests show the sewage spill is no longer affecting water quality.

For information on the status of the closing, residents can call 410-222-7999 or check the Health Department Web site at www. aahealth.org.
