WHITE MARSH, Md. — A pair of water main breaks are impacting the Tuesday morning commute in Baltimore County.

There is a large sinkhole at 13186 York Road by the Broadmead Retirement facility.

According to the Department of Public Works' interactive map, the incident was reported just before 1:30 Monday afternoon.

A WMAR camera crew went out to the scene this morning where repairs appeared to be underway.

The incident is affecting residents, businesses, and customers north of Shawan Road and York Road within the Cockeysville, Hunt Valley and Sparks communities.

Residents there are being asked to reduce their water usage until repairs are completed. There is no estimated timeframe on when that will occur.

Starting Tuesday at 3pm bottled water will be distributed at USA Lacrosse, located at 2 Loveton Circle in Sparks Glencoe. Water will also be available Wednesday from noon to 7pm.

The second issue is along northbound Philadelphia Road, between Nottingridge Road and White Marsh Boulevard.

A 20" water main break there is expected to keep roads closed through afternoon rush hour. Commuters can use route 40 as a detour.
