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 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.

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.

And then, nothing. No drama. Just the broad day, a day in the middle of this week at Loch Raven Reservoir, with the white-tailed deer drinking in the shallows, then up periscope! Spooked by something human, the deer flee into the woods, afraid of something, waiting for that something to pass so they can return to drink. The deer don't want any drama, either. Not out here, especially now. A week ago today, 42 young people were robbed at gunpoint in a remote area of the reservoir called the Cliffs - a hangout far away from the road and the sound of traffic and the taste of the city.
