Engage in Advocacy

Be an advocate for clean water issues!

Blue Water Baltimore advocates for policies and initiatives at the local and state level that protect our waterways, public health, and quality of life for all Maryland residents. Changing local policy is one of our best tools for lasting change. 

If you support a clean environment and strong, healthy communities, join our advocacy efforts today:

Baltimore City Policy

We are actively engaged in improving water quality policy with the Baltimore City Department of Public Works and the Baltimore City Council, and monitor the Sewage Consent Decree. Some of our immediate goals are:

Reducing sewage backups in residents’ homes

Improving systems for green stormwater infrastructure

Maryland State Policy

The 2021 Maryland General Assembly session will be conducted with COVID-19 precautions in place, which will include no in-person testimony or on-site lobbying, at least to start. The Senate and House committees will have processes for submitting written testimony prior to bill hearings, as well as sign-ups for oral testimony via video call. In the Senate, even the number of individuals who may testify will be limited. This year especially, writing and emailing your legislators will be one of the single best ways to share your interest in legislation.
