ARLINGTON, Va. (WUSA9) -- Arlington residents are advised to avoid water downstream of a sewage release, county officials said.
The sewage release occurred between the Dominion Plaza Apartments and Arlington Village Condominiums, just above the Army Navy Country Club into Arlington Branch.
Officials advise to avoid Arlington Branch, Lower Long Branch and Four Mile Run from Columbia Pike downstream to the Potomac River.
This occurred due to a blocked 12" sewage pipe. Street crews are currently working to remove the blockage from the pipe. Arlington County officials have advised residents to stay away from the affected waters and to also keep their pets away any exposure to untreated sewage.
