Default Sanitary Sewer Overflow in White Oak



Sanitary Sewer Overflow in White Oak

LAUREL- (December 21, 2011): A blockage in a sewer main in White Oak caused a Sanitary Sewer Overflow (SSO) on Tuesday. It happened in the 1800 block of April Lane.

The SSO started about 12:15 p.m. and ended at approximately 1:30 p.m. It is estimated that 10,000 gallons of wastewater overflowed into the Paint Branch basin.

Notifications have been made to the Maryland Department of the Environment and the Montgomery County Health Department. WSSC crews spread lime in the affected area and posted 10 signs.

WSSC is committed to protecting the health of the public and the environment. With nearly 5,400 miles of sewer mains throughout its service area, WSSC appreciates notification from citizens if a sewer back up is suspected. Citizens can call 301-206-4002 or toll free 1-800-828-6439 at any time to report water or sewer emergencies in Prince George's or Montgomery counties.
