SAVAGE, Md. - State officials say a power outage caused by superstorm Sandy at a water reclamation plant has resulted in a sewage overflow of 2 million gallons per hour into the main stem of the Little Patuxent River.
Officials say the overflow began Monday night when a storm-induced power supply loss from both electrical feeders caused the overflow.
Crews with the Bureau of Utilities are working with BGE to restore power.
Officials say because of the severity of Hurricane Sandy, no action is being currently being taken to mitigate the damage.
