Water had been restored to all Baltimore County residents by Thursday afternoon after a power outage to a pumping station interrupted service Wednesday, according to city and county officials. Residents and businesses whose running water was restored overnight had been urged to conserve water earlier Thursday. Most of the customers from Lake Avenue in Baltimore to Sparks who were affected by Wednesday's outage, caused by an electrical fire in the power lines leading to the Hillen Road pumping station, should have had some running water this morning, according to Baltimore's Department of Public Works.

Council OKs PUD reform" Feb. 22). It's about time. Such projects allow developers to get around certain zoning restrictions by offering defined benefits to the community.

The bad news is that the smaller of the two lakes that make up Laurel Lakes is almost filled in with trees, bushes, cattails and other shrubbery. Only a small portion of that upper lake, near Oxford Street, has a section of water visible from the decks of the surrounding town houses along its banks. The good news is that some time next year, Prince George's County officials, who have authority over the water in the lakes, plan to dredge the upper lake, something many local residents have been calling for over the past 10 years.

Elford Jackson stood across from the Yau Bros. carryout on Greenmount Avenue in Waverly Saturday afternoon, on the future site of a neighborhood resource center. The Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity purchased the building last April, but considered not moving there after two men were fatally shot and a third was wounded inside the Chinese restaurant in March last year. But two more killings last week on Greenmount Avenue, including another in the same carryout, prompted the fraternity members to change their minds again.

Verizon restored 911 service to Howard County customers late Monday evening, police said. Police had asked residents to use an alternate emergency number for several hours before announcing just before 11 p.m. that Verizon had fixed a technical glitch. Some residents who attempted to dial 911 from landlines received a fast busy signal. County police spread word of the problem using recorded phone messages. Police said they were uncertain how many people had experienced the problem but were alerted to it when a nursing home staff member in Columbia failed to get through on an emergency call.
