County Lifts Second Advisory on Lubber Run Water

Arlington County has lifted the advisory issued on Thursday, Oct. 23 for parts of Lubber Run and Four Mile Run.

The county took the precautionary measure of warning residents to avoid contact with the waters downstream from a sewage spill site in Lubber Run Park. The precaution was meant to allow the normal ecological process in the streams to reduce the potentially elevated bacteria levels caused by the release.

Following several days of stream flow and rain, Arlington County now recommends that residents resume adherence to its normal protective precautions for safe use of its urban streams. You can find information and safety tips on Arlington streams on the Arlington County Department of Environmental Services web site.
