BALTIMORE — A suspected broken sewer main in the 900 block of Wilmington Avenue was reported to the Baltimore City Department of Public Works on August 28 and was repaired on September 19.

According to DPW, the total overflow of water/sewage was estimated at approximately 16,000 gallons.

The public is advised to avoid contact with the receiving waters impacted by the overflow. DPW says that waterways throughout Baltimore City are considered impaired, and may not meet applicable standards for contact recreation, including swimming, regardless of the impact of a specific sewer overflow. Accordingly, the City discourages body contact with all surface waters.
