MD Wells Run Hit With Oil Contamination

August 3, 2010 - The scent on Tuesday afternoon in the air along Wells Run stream was not that of wildflowers or mosses growing on rocks but that of gasoline.

It may be due to the roadwork along Adelphi Road, but some of it can be attributed to the oil that spilled into the creek over the weekend.

For most of Monday and Tuesday afternoon, a small crew from Marcor Environmental, a private company tasked to clean up the spill, could be seen in white uniforms placing oil-absorbent sheets into Wells Run.
