Join the fight to keep Baltimore’s waterways clean and healthy. Every member of our community depends on it.
More than one million people live in Baltimore’s Watersheds
For too long, Baltimore’s waterways have been plagued by trash, toxins, sewage, and polluted stormwater.
These problems do more than harm our environment; they threaten the health and well-being of our residents, communities, and local businesses.
Blue Water Baltimore’s mission is to restore the quality of Baltimore’s rivers, streams and Harbor to foster a healthy environment, a strong economy and thriving communities.
Blue Water Baltimore takes a holistic approach to making safe, clean water a reality in Baltimore.
We hold polluters accountable by monitoring water quality, reporting pollution, and following cases through to their resolution.
Through volunteer events and collaborative efforts, we work to restore tree canopy and promote green infrastructure.
