May 23, 2021 – The Anne Arundel County Department of Health has issued an advisory against swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding and other direct water contact for Elizabeths Landing, Lombardee Beach and Sunset Beach on Stoney Creek. The advisory has been issued due to an overnight 6,500-gallon wastewater spill that resulted from a force main break on Nabbs Creek Road in Glen Burnie. The Department of Health will collect water samples, and the advisory will be lifted when test results show that the bacterial levels are acceptable for swimming and other direct water contact.
Advisory signs were posted, and the Anne Arundel County Department of Public Works limed the impacted ground. The Department of Health advises people coming in contact with the affected water to wash well with soap and warm water immediately. Clothing should also be washed.
