Sewage Spill Prompts Health Warning

A sewage spill of more than 100,000 gallons in Severna Park, Maryland, has caused local health officials to issue a public warning against wading or swimming in Cypress Creek. "Just as summery weather arrives and a holiday weekend beckons, along comes this warning: Don't cool off with a dip in Cypress Creek," the poet Pamela Wood writes in the Annapolis Capital. The Anne Arundel County Health Department announced on June 1 that the creek had been re-opened because the sewage spill had stopped and tests showed bacteria levels had dropped.
