WSSC Temporary Sewer Pipes Trap Trash

Surprising amount mostly of plastic bottles that have floated downstream and been captured by the temporary sewer pipes WSSC contractors have assembled to serve as a sewer pipe while they clean out and reline the sewer pipes. The trash was collected over a two week period in January and February 2015 near Park Valley Road in section 3.

The water in the creek rises during rain storms;
the trash is trapped when the water level recedes.

The trash seems to be mostly water bottles and soda bottles.
