ANNAPOLIS, MD - Five thousand gallons of sewage leaked from a broken pipe in Annapolis on New Year's Eve, The Capital reported Tuesday.

City spokesperson Mitchelle Stephenson told The Capital the leak was "small to medium." The Capital said crews fixed the pipe, located in the 200 block of Victor Parkway, in an hour or two.

“I was on a family bicycle ride on Sunday morning along Victor Parkway when I heard water running into a storm drain. I stopped to investigate and noticed the water was coming from a manhole in the street. I called DPW utilities who dispatched a crew to clear the blockage,” Annapolis Department of Public Works Director Burr Vogel told The Capital. “I thank our DPW crews for their work on New Year’s Eve to quickly resolve the issue.”

To see how the pipe broke and learn about a separate 300,000-gallon leak this past summer, read The Capital's full story. That article is only available to subscribers, however.
