Environmental regulators have long known of the contamination in the soil at Sparrows Point in eastern Baltimore County. Now, the Environmental Protection Agency is probing the mud under the waters around the old steel mill to test for contamination.

Sherry Gerben has lived on Jones Creek, across from Sparrows Point for 37 years. She says back in the day, they had a boat. Not anymore.
