Anne Arundel creek reopens after spill of raw sewage

February 24, 2007

An Arnold waterway has been reopened after a 17,500-gallon wastewater spill last week, the Anne Arundel County Department of Health said yesterday.

Test results show Deep Creek's water is acceptable for direct contact and recreational use, according to state and federal standards.

The ice storm on Valentine's Day knocked out power to much of Anne Arundel County, including the Bay Hills Pumping Station. It overflowed, sending the raw sewage into the creek.
