Please read this alert from Cheltenham Township:

The Cheltenham Township sanitary sewer system has been damaged by recent historic flooding, causing sewage to leak into the Tookany Creek at a few locations. EVERYONE IS ADVISED TO STAY OUT OF THE TOOKANY CREEK eastwards from Wall Park, through High School Park and along the Tookany Creek Parkway. Keep pets away from the creek as well.

The damaged sanitary sewer lines are located near Wall Park and the Melrose Country Club. In addition, the sanitary sewer bypass installed last summer has to be shut down periodically for repairs, increasing the possibility of sewage overflows near Ogontz Field and Shoemaker Road.
