City Crews Repair Water Main Break in Rosedale

The break affected customers including Franklin Square hospital and CCBC.

Baltimore City crews Monday afternoon are working to repair a broken 16-inch water main in Rosedale.

The break occured along Philadelphia Road near Rossville Boulevard early Monday afternoon and led to low water pressure in the area, said city Department of Public Works spokesman Kurt Kocher. The break affected customers including Franklin Square Medical Center and Community College of Baltimore County-Essex. CCBC Essex canceled classes for the afternoon. Franklin Square activated its "instant command center," said spokeswoman Ming Tai.

Kocher said crews are in the process of shutting down the main. No further information was immediately available.

The break is one of several high-profile Baltimore-area water main breaks in recent weeks.
