Baltimore City has officially replaced its quarterly billing cycle with a shiny new digitized monthly system.
With its pedestrian-friendly waterfront that boasts museums, sports stadiums, dining and shopping, Baltimore City’s Inner Harbor is a unique asset. But recent waterfront news has focused on our town’s aging sewage systems struggles and the continued sewage effluence and pollution that flows into the harbor.

We now have a better understanding of what it will take to make the harbor clean. The puzzle pieces are finally in place.”
