Annapolis, MD (September 28, 2023) – The Anne Arundel County Department of Health has ordered an emergency closing and warns against direct water contact for Marley Creek in Glen Burnie. The impacted area is between Brewers Island and Marley Creek Drive. The closing is due to a sewage spill estimated at over 10,000 gallons. The Anne Arundel County Department of Health was alerted about the spill at the Gatewater Landing Apartments. The overflow started on September 27, 2023 and continued into September 28. The cause appears to be a pump failure at the apartment complex. The closing will remain in effect until Thursday, October 5, 2023.
