STEVENSVILLE, Md - The Cox Creek in Stevensville is under a water activity advisory after a contractor ruptured a sewer main on Route 18 adjacent to Cox Creek, according to the Queen Anne's County Public Works Department.

Public Works said as of Wednesday afternoon, the advisory recommends people and pets avoid such as swimming, fishing, paddle boarding and wading in the creek for the next 48 hours. 

The contractor was out testing pits for Delmarva Power, public works said, in an effort to restore transmission polls damaged by last month's tornado. While they were working, the contractor hit and ruptured the sewer main.

Repairs to the sewer main are underway.
