In his talk this month regarding the history of Liberty Reservoir, James Slater Jr., water resources program manager for the Baltimore Metropolitan Council, said most of the water in Carroll County stays here a while, but not for long. Slater, a Finksburg resident and former compliance and environmental programs director for the county, spoke Nov. 17 at the Finksburg Library, at the monthly meeting of the Finksburg Planning and Community Council. He said Carroll's outward flow of water is because of a geological formation called Parr's Ridge, which intersects the county at a southwest by northwest angle.

The recent article about rules and regulations at Loch Raven Reservoir ("Think before you leap," June 25) was very informative and was an important reminder for citizens using the reservoir. The public needs to abide by the rules in order to preserve our drinking water and for safety reasons, too. Bikers, hikers, nature photographers, birdwatchers and any other groups or individuals need to work together to support the laws put into place so that we can enjoy our beautiful Loch Raven in a respectful manner.

Rescue crews on Saturday recovered the body of a young man who drowned in Loch Raven Reservoir on Friday night. Anthony Ibewuike, 23, of Havre de Grace was attempting to swim across the reservoir with others early Friday evening when he went under, police said. Dive teams, boats and a county police helicopter began searching Friday for the swimmer, who went missing shortly before 6:30 p.m., said Elise Armacost, a spokeswoman for the Baltimore County Fire Department. The search ended shortly after 8 p.m. Friday because of darkness and poor weather conditions, she said.

To hunt or not to hunt is no longer a question. The overabundant deer population in the forests around Loch Raven Reservoir will be culled by hunters for the first time this fall and winter, state and local officials said at a public meeting on the much-debated issue last night at Loch Raven High School. About 225 people filled the school auditorium to hear officials outline the new hunting policy, which animal rights activists have successfully blocked for years. The deer inhabit an area that can't support the current population, said Kurt Kocher, a spokesman for the Baltimore Department of Public Works.

About 18,000 gallons of sewage spilled into Stemmers Run over the weekend when a sewer line became blocked on Trumps Mill Road in Overlea, Baltimore County officials reported. The overflow lasted from about noon Saturday to about 12:30 a.m. Sunday, as repair crews were unable to immediately dislodge the blockage, according to David Fid ler, spokesman for the county's Department of Public Works. Workers brought pumps to the site and set up a pump-around, which enabled them to restore sewer service.
