Miss the county fair?
Head down to Main Street and close your eyes.
An "alleged liquefied manure spill" has left the Historic District smelling fairly funky from Oella Avenue to the , according to Howard County Fire and Rescue Battalion Chief Brothers.
Brothers said a truck carrying the manure, which is used for fertilizer, must have sprung a leak, the contents of which are visible as a muddy path along the bridge over the Patapsco River and up Main Street.
The truck did not stop, he said.
The initial plan was to wash the street down but, as the manure was fairly thick in some places, crews are going to dump sand on the road to soak it up, then sweep it away, according to Brothers.
Baltimore County police are conducting the investigation, and the State Highway Administration will be managing the roadway.
