Maryland Department of the Environment officials said a 35-year-old, under-enforced federal regulation could now mandate that levels of fecal bacteria in a sprawling Carroll County watershed be reduced by more than 90 percent, though the state did not suggest yesterday how to improve water quality. Carroll County officials said they have anticipated costly wastewater treatment plant upgrades as the federal government starts to implement more of the 1972 Clean Water Act. It requires states to identify polluted waterways and set limits for each source of contamination.

When the congregation of Pipe Creek German Baptist Church dedicated its newly rebuilt church the first Sunday in November 1891, so many people attended that some could not get inside for services.The Rev. Stan Diehl, minister at what is now Pipe Creek Church of the Brethren, and the church's 100th Anniversary Committee, are hoping for an equally large turnout Sunday when they re-dedicate the century-old sanctuary."We're celebrating with an old-fashioned service, much as it was 100 years ago when the church was built," Diehl said.

With dozens of small American flags tucked under their arms, five members of American Legion Carroll Post 31 walked the hills of Pipe Creek Cemetery in Uniontown, calling out names to each other and searching for the corresponding gravestones and markers to plant the flags. When they finished, 181 military veterans buried or commemorated at the cemetery had the Stars and Stripes waving in the wind for them, an honor extended every Memorial Day weekend to deceased soldiers in Carroll County for more than three decades.

Carroll County might receive additional state money - as much as $1 million - to preserve farmland in the Little Pipe Creek watershed. State officials plan to reallocate Rural Legacy money that was granted to municipalities two years ago if those dollars are not spent by the end of the year. The money would be directed to jurisdictions - including Carroll and Baltimore counties - that have spent all of the money they were granted in 1998. It was not clear yesterday how much money would be available.

Heavy rains interrupted Carroll County's post-Isabel sigh of relief yesterday, causing significant flooding across the northwestern section of the county. The flooding in Carroll trapped two motorists who had to be rescued, closed schools and, temporarily, more than 30 roads, and filled basements with water. It also opened two small sinkholes and turned fields and meadows into slimy bogs. In Union Bridge, Little Pipe Creek became a roaring, mud-brown river that ran 5 feet deep and 30 feet across on Main Street and into several businesses, including the service station owned by County Commissioner Perry L. Jones Jr. In Detour, water lapped at the edge of several lawns, as Double Pipe Creek covered the main road through town.

Commissioner Robin Bartlett Frazier, who traveled to Southern Maryland for Gov. Parris N. Glendening's news conference to announce the awards of Rural Legacy funds, said she was "only slightly disappointed" to get $1 million - for preservation efforts along Little Pipe Creek in western Carroll.
