Clean Water Rally for Baltimore County
Baltimore County Council is considering legislation that would phase out the county’s stormwater utility fee.
This fee pays for projects and programs designed to improve water quality in the county’s streams and rivers, reduce neighborhood flooding, and increase tree planting in communities.
The County Council and the County Executive have to work together to reduce polluted runoff in Baltimore County and they must come to an agreement on how much money is available for the County’s stormwater program and where it is coming from.
They won’t do either of these, though, unless they hear from you.
Attend a public rally at 5:30 pm on Monday, November 16, at Patriot Plaza in front of the Old Courthouse in Towson, to tell the County Council to protect clean water in Baltimore County.
The rally will make loud and clear the message that the County Council must hold the bill and keep the stormwater fee in place as is until a public plan becomes available. Visit our blog post on this battle to learn other ways you can help.
