Anne Arundel: North County

Thousands without water after break

A break in a 42-inch water line on Marley Neck Road in Glen Burnie left thousands of Anne Arundel County residents without water last night, according to county officials. The break, which was reported about 7 p.m., cut off the water supply to Glen Burnie, parts of Orchard Beach, Riviera Beach and Marley, said Rhonda Wardlaw, a county spokeswoman. Wardlaw said county Department of Public Works crews were at the scene of the break and were attempting to redirect water from other locations. It was not known what caused the break, and Wardlaw didn't know how soon the problem could be fixed but said the situation appeared to be improving late last night.
