More than 300 homes and businesses were without water in the Fells Point area Wednesday night after crews were forced to shut off service to repair a ruptured water line. Water service was restored early Thursday morning, according to the Baltimore Department of Public Works, but officials warned that low water pressure would last for hours. Workers shut down the 16-inch water main in order to make repairs to a 6-inch water line that broke in a vacant building in the 500 block of S. Broadway Tuesday night, according to DPW. A five-alarm fire that took hours to extinguish seriously damaged the same building in 2012.

Anne Arundel County Department of Public Works said Monday that crews are managing a water main leak in the Glen Burnie/Pasadena area as they work to schedule repairs. Matt Diehl, public information officer for the department, said the leak was discovered Saturday, and is a relatively "slow" leak. He said it's not known yet what caused it, but age and weather are "the usual suspects. " Officials said that due to the location of the affected pipe -- the intersection of Solley Road and North Shore Road -- the work will require a temporary shutdown of several sewage pump stations to complete.

Work crews hustled on Labor Day to break down concrete barriers and fencing from the Grand Prix of Baltimore, racing to reopen downtown streets and sidewalks before Tuesday's rush hour and a National Football League pregame concert later this week. By mid-morning, joggers, strollers and cars were pushing through roadway openings that workers had cleared between downtown and Federal Hill, areas that had been closed off for the weekend's auto races. The Baltimore City Department of Transportation said streets along the track circuit, which included portions of Pratt, Conway, Russell and Light streets, were scheduled to open one-by-one on Monday and "most roadways affected by the race" were expected to be accessible by 6 a.m. Tuesday.

EDITORIAL FROM THE AEGIS | August 13, 2013
There's long been reason to question the management of Harford County's volunteer fire and ambulance service. It depends on a substantial annual allocation of taxpayer money and is relied upon to provide a vital public service, yet its decision-making processes have been secretive and often when they become public they appear petty and provincial. These problems increasingly are being pondered by a county government public safety oversight committee, though that committee appears increasingly bogged down in bureaucracy.

More than 44,000 gallons of sewage spilled near Goucher College in Towson before crews stopped the overflow Monday, Baltimore County public works officials say. Public works officials received a report of sewage odors in the area Aug. 5, and crews tracked the source to a grassy area northwest of the Dulaney Valley and Southerly roads intersection. A root blocking a sewer pipe had caused the overflow, and was cleared Monday afternoon, officials said. The sewage flowed into a grassy area east of Dulaney Valley Road and into Long Quarter Branch.

Nearly two months after announcing it would convene a panel to study what it called a "disturbing trend" of declining attendance at NCAA Division I men's lacrosse Championship Weekend, the Intercollegiate Men's Lacrosse Coaches Association has issued recommendations for solving the problem. The group's white paper, which was submitted to the NCAA Division I Men's Lacrosse Committee on Aug. 3, lists skyrocketing ticket prices (which have nearly doubled in the past seven years, from $60 for an all-session pass in 2006 to $110 in 2013)
