Heavy rains caused a wastewater treatment plant at the Edgewood Area of Aberdeen Proving Ground to release some 250,000 gallons of partially treated sewage into the Bush River on Tuesday, base officials said. Nearly 4 inches of rainfall within 24 hours sent the sewage from secondary clarifier tanks into a chlorine contact chamber and on to the river in Harford County, base spokesman Kelly Luster said. The Bush River, which separates the Edgewood Area from the rest of the Army base, flows into the Chesapeake Bay. It was the largest spill into the river this year, according to the Maryland Department of the Environment database.

Ron A. Szymanski, who was chief software architect at Aberdeen Proving Ground, died July 26 of stomach cancer at Gilchrist Hospice Care in Towson. He was 34. Born and raised in Middlesex, N.J., Mr. Szymanski was a 1996 graduate of Middlesex High School. In 2000, he earned a bachelor's degree in math education from The College of New Jersey in Ewing. In 2004, he earned a master's degree in computer science from Monmouth University in West Long Branch, N.J. "Ron always had a gift for computers, so that led him to accept an opportunity at Fort Monmouth rather than going into teaching," said his wife of nine years, the former Amy Erica Speiser.

Lazzaro, a former Marine who lived in Baltimore County, was the first of three divers to die in the Super Pond in less than a month.

— The dive that claimed the lives of two members of an elite Navy team wasn't the only thing that went wrong that February day at Aberdeen Proving Ground's Super Pond, witnesses testified during a military hearing Wednesday. First, the underwater breathing units that the team took to Aberdeen failed, forcing the divers to change equipment. Then, the first two men into the water had to cut their dive short when the line that tethered them to their boat tangled. That was when Diver 1st Class James Reyher and Diver 2nd Class Ryan Harris took their fatal plunge.
