second sewage leak
Gwynns Falls (

If you thought it was bad when 17,553 gallons of raw sewage flowed into Gwynns Falls over the course of eight days, with the city finally fixing it Oct. 2), then take a look at this. But you may want to plug your nose. A new leak sent 36,000 gallons of sewage into Maiden’s Choice Run, a Gwynns Falls tributary, in just three hours on Thursday. At least this time we heard about it a lot sooner!

According to the Baltimore Sun, the leak is being blamed on all the rain we’ve seen this week.

So, yeah, stay away from the Gwynns Falls for a second.
