Baltimore County DPW has reported that approximately 20,500 gallons of were water has overflowed at Glendale Park near Loch Raven Blvd and Taylor Avenue.

Crews were able to find that the cause of the overflow was due to a damaged manhole. They report a fallen tree damaged the manhole, which led to the overflow of the 16-inch sewer line.

The release later made its way to the tributary of Herring Run.
