BALTIMORE (WJZ)— An estimated 15,000 gallons of wastewater overflowed after a water main broke in Northeast Baltimore.
Department of Public Works says the overflow was caused when an eight-inch diameter water main broke, eroded the roadway, and damaged the sewer main and storm drain below.
The sewage spilled into the storm drain and overflowed into Herring Run at the outfall where Brehms Lane crosses the stream.
Crews stopped the overflow Friday morning at the intersection of Brehms Lane and Kenyon Avenue with by-pass pumping.
The broken water main has been repaired. Drinking water has not been affected.
