Waste oil contained from tanker accident on Glen Burnie exit ramp

According to the Anne Arundel County Fire Department, a tanker overturned in Glen Burnie Wednesday, leaking an estimated 30 gallons of waste oil near a stream within the Patapsco Tidal Watershed.

Fire department officials were alerted of the crash shortly before 2 p.m. on the exit ramp from Ordnance Road to southbound Maryland Route 10. 

Jay Apperson of the state's Department of Natural Resources said that the tanker was carrying 6500 gallons of waste oil and that the leak of the 30 gallons was contained.  There was a concern as the leak happened not far from Furnace Creek, which has had health warnings over the past few years about people and animals contacting the water because of unsafe bacteria levels.
