WJZ-TV Interviews DPW Director About Wastewater Overflow in Glen Burnie

Anne Arundel County Department of Public Works Director Chris Phipps was interviewed by WJZ-TV yesterday regarding Monday morning's sanitary sewer overflow at the Marley Sewage Pump Sation in Glen Burnie.  A temporary bypass pump system failed at the facility causing a significant overflow in excess of 10,000 gallons into Marley Creek.  The temporary system was put in place by a construction contractor to keep the wastewater collection system online during the ongoing capital project to provide major upgrades to the pump station for the first time since 1979. 


The Department of Health has issued an Emergency Closing of Marley Creek from the headwaters to Chain O Hills Road (accross from Sunrise Lane).  The closing is in effect until further notice  Health Department announcement.
