Sewage Leak in Severna Park

A crack in a sewer pipe feeding the Mill Creek Pumping Station, located at Jones Station Road and College Parkway, collapsed yesterday, dumping 100,000 gallons of raw sewage into Mill Creek, which feeds into the Magothy River. Authorities are asking that residents in Arnold, Severna Park, and Millersville limit their use of public water until noon today, so as to avoid added strain on the system.

[UPDATE: Turns out the spill was 3 million gallons]
