Frederick County Health Department Warns Residents To Avoid Waterways Affected By Sewage Overflow From Saint Mary Run To Toms Creek To The Monocacy River


From Frederick County Health Department on February 15th:

Due to a sewage overflow on Mount St. Mary’s University campus on the east side of Rt. 15, the Frederick County Health Department advises the public to avoid the waters from Saint Mary Run to Toms Creek to the Monocacy River.

Swimming and full body immersion in these waters should be avoided. If a resident comes in contact with the affected water, they should wash thoroughly with soap and warm water, especially before eating. Boating and fishing is still permitted and fish may still be safe to consume if cleaned, scaled, and cooked. Pet owners should also keep their pets away from these waters.

Signs will be posted on Mount Saint Mary’s University campus at the Saint Mary Run. Waters should be avoided for two weeks from today, until February 29, 2024.
