Major Eruption in Baltimore!

Or business as usual? Raw sewage making way from erupting manhole to Chesapeake Bay Video at link. 
The Baltimore City Department of Public Works is investigating what appears to be a massive sewage flow, spewing raw waste through Gwynns Falls Park. It's where the spill is headed that is more worrisome.

A work crew made the smelly and filthy discovery deep inside those woods. The steady stream flowing like an erupting volcano out of an elevated manhole is not being absorbed by the wooded environment.

The flow is on a collision course with a natural spring. The filthy mix invades a creek. That waterway leads to Gwynns Falls, which goes past I95 to Ridgely's Cove to the middle branch of the Patapsco River near West Port and Cherry Hill and ultimately into the Chesapeake Bay.

A crew from the City Department of Public Works is being dispatched to investigate. There is no information yet on where the raw sewage is coming from and what caused it to happen.
Let me hazard a guess. Because Baltimore hasn't fixed it's sewage system yet?
