BEL AIR, Md. (WJZ)— Water and sewer crews are working to repair a 30-inch sewage main break in Bel Air.
The concrete pipe broke Friday, spilling sewage into Bush Creek in Harford County. The break was caused by tree roots that grew into the pipe through a joint.
The Maryland Department of Environment and the Harford County Health Department have been notified.
Crews hope to have a temporary repair completed on Saturday to stop the sewage overflow.
Workers hope to have a permanent repair made by next weekend depending on the delivery of the pipe transition.
