WHARF CREEK IN PASADENA REOPENED:
On March 25, 2019, the Anne Arundel County Department of Health ordered an emergency closing and warned against swimming and other direct water contact in Wharf Creek, a tributary of Bodkin Creek in Pasadena, Maryland. The closing was due to a sewage overflow estimated between 18,000 and 24,000 gallons from the inflow pipe leading to the holding tank at the Chesapeake High School Complex in Pasadena. The overflow occurred over the weekend. The closing remained in effect until Monday, April 1, 2019.
The Department of Health posted signs. People coming in contact with the affected water were advised to wash well with soap and warm water immediately.
