What’s this hearing about?

Have you had sewage back up into your home in Baltimore City? Are you worried that it might happen to you? 

This hearing will focus on the effectiveness of current measures to address basement backups of raw sewage in Baltimore City homes. We believe that the City could do so much better.

Results are in from the first year of the City’s Sewage Backup Reimbursement Program and the data speaks for itself – there are serious problems with the design and administration of the program. There are steps the City can — and should — take to remedy those problems.

Join us to make your voice heard: Baltimore deserves better!
