  • Raising a Stink

    Raw sewage, which is supposed to be carried to treatment plants via underground pipes, overflowed 16 times since last summer along a five-block stretch of Greenspring Avenue between Cold Spring Lane and Northern Parkway in Baltimore, according to the city's reporting of such incidents. In all, these overflows spewed at least 12,000 gallons of nutrient-laden effluent, to make its way through storm drains and streams downhill into the nearby Jones Falls, the Baltimore Harbor, and ultimately, the Chesapeake Bay, where it contributes to algal blooms and fish kills. While this is a regular occurrence citywide-in March, the city reported 68 such overflows, leaking an estimated 10,000 gallons of sewage-until recently it hasn't been along this stretch of Greenspring Avenue, where there had been only seven reported overflows between 2005 and 2012.
