The 17-foot boat slowly motored across Loch Raven Reservoir, drawing salutations from fishermen who wanted to know where the bass were biting.But even though the two-man crew had tens of thousands of dollars worth of search equipment crammed on board, they couldn't help find fish. They were on the body of water looking for a different prize -- the reservoir bottom that was submerged 75 years ago.The researchers from the U.S. Geological Survey hope to determine how much sediment has washed into the reservoir since Loch Raven Dam was raised to its existing level in 1923 to increase the water supply for a growing Baltimore region.

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.

Visionary engineers, tough local development regulations -- and a stroke of luck -- might have spared Loch Raven Reservoir from filling in with sediment these last 75 years, extending the life of the water supply and saving taxpayers from costly dredging.Officials with the Maryland Geological Survey, working with federal and local agencies on the most comprehensive study of area reservoirs, found the capacity of Loch Raven has not significantly diminished since 1923 -- contrary to the fears of environmentalists.

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 Fidler, spokesman for the county's Department of Public Works. They brought pumps to the site and set up a pump-around, which enabled them to restore sewer service.
