When a regional water-use review panel meets next month in Cecil County, the group is to receive a progress update on Aberdeen's request to draw water from Deer Creek, a scenic river flowing through northern Harford County. The Susquehanna River Basin Commission is a multistate agency that approves water uses affecting the river, which runs from New York through Pennsylvania and Maryland, and it must give final approval to any permit for withdrawing water from the river or its tributaries.

Andrew "Chap" Cummings has lived his 90 years in the same historic Harford County home overlooking Deer Creek, and he has worked the land for most of his life. "From every window he looks out, he has a fabulous view of the creek and the valley," said his daughter, Susan Cummings of Bowie. To preserve that view and safeguard the land along Sandy Hook Road in Street from encroaching residential development, Andrew Cummings has placed all 91.5 acres in the state's Rural Legacy program. "Dad was born there, worked hard all his life there, and he wants to keep this land in farming," his daughter said.

Opponents of a long-planned expansion at Harford's only government-operated landfill have argued for nearly a year that the project will hurt the environment, their health and property values, but they have based their appeal to the Maryland Office of Administrative Hearings solely on water issues. They have asked an administrative law judge to withhold a permit to expand the Harford Waste Disposal Center in Street, saying a larger landfill will degrade residential wells and Deer Creek, a nearby water source for thousands of county residents.

Aberdeen is one bureaucratic hurdle away from tapping Deer Creek for its drinking water and overcoming a united front by farmers and conservationists. To move ahead with its plans, the city needs to win approval by the Susquehanna River Basin Commission in a Dec. 15 meeting. Barring any delays, the vote would decide a years-long debate over the 50-mile stream, which runs through the hilly terrain of northern Harford County and empties into the Susquehanna. At issue is whether Aberdeen can pump up to 4.9 million gallons a day for the city's 5,000 water customers.

Jenna Hertzog dragged her high school friends from a slumber party to a planting party yesterday at a community conservation project near Harford County's municipal landfill in Street. Helping 200 other volunteers plant 900 seedlings along Deer Creek meant extra credit in biology for the 15-year-old Forest Hill girl and "a totally awesome experience giving back to nature and putting oxygen into the air," she said. If only she and her friends had dressed for the chilly March weather and the mud. With temperatures barely in the 40s, many volunteers wore wool-lined hiking shoes or sturdy rubber boots.

"There is no guarantee that when a middle-aged man enters the dark forest where the black dog is waiting, he will come out healed. It is possible to be broken there beyond hope of repair. " -- Howell Raines, from "Fly Fishing Through The Midlife Crisis" Mike Flanagan and I became friends after his major league pitching career ended and most of his old teammates and fishing buddies from the glory years of the Baltimore Orioles had scattered across the country. We were transplanted New Englanders, rooted in Maryland and approaching middle age with fly rods in our hands — mine in my right, Mike's in his left.

For many years, the congregation of the Mount Carmel Primitive Baptist Church east of Bel Air has baptized new members in nearby Deer Creek.But now the parish, worried about pollution in Deer Creek, plans to build an addition for a baptismal for the day they decide to abandon the old ritual of dunking new believers.Church elders, citing their aversion to secularity, refused to talk to a reporter for this story.But the church deacon's point of view on the issue can be found in records of their testimony at a zoning hearing about the proposed addition to the church, during which they said they fear there may come a day when Deer Creek is too polluted to be used for outdoor baptisms.

IN MARYLAND, the serpentine barrens run through the northwest corner of Cecil County and enter Harford just south of Broad Creek and perpendicular to the Susquehanna River. The geological formation arcs through Mill Green and turns up in patches along Deer Creek and Little Deer Creek. The largest concentration of serpentinite in Maryland is at Soldiers Delight Natural Environmental Area in Owings Mills, where the thin soil and unique vegetation is on display to the public. According to Martin F. Schmidt Jr. in the book Maryland's Geology, "Serpentinite's attractive green color has led to its use as a decorative rock known as `green marble,' " which is a famous product of the Harford County quarry at Whiteford.
