What You Need to Know About the Harbor’s ‘F’ in Water Quality

Screen Shot 2016-05-12 at 12.51.08 PMThe 2015 Healthy Harbor Report Card is out and it came as no surprise that the Inner Harbor’s water quality received a failing grade. Again. We recently outlined seven big ideas underway to reduce the Baltimore-area’s sewage, trash, and stormwater pollution that flows into the Inner Harbor. Here’s what you need to know about this year’s report card.

Blue Water Baltimore’s Executive Director Halle Van der Gaag summed it up the best at the report card’s unveiling, “It used to be lonely working to clean up our waterways; it felt as if it was just us. But since the 2010 launch of the Healthy Harbor Initiative, which  brought government, nonprofits, and the community together, the team has built in expertise, focus, finances and resolve. While we must ensure a lot of infrastructure work happens before 2020, we just may be swimming this harbor after all.”

7 Big Ideas That Just May Clean Up Baltimore’s Inner Harbor

Screen Shot 2016-03-30 at 3.15.04 PMWith 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.

Yet, a pretty interesting story has been developing underfoot, literally. When combined, the seven projects outlined below support a clear vision for a cleaner and healthier Inner Harbor. If these efforts are completed, and soon, Baltimore’s Inner Harbor has a fighting chance to be swimmable and fishable in the near future. 

The Waterfront Partnership of Baltimore’s Chairman of the Board Michael Hankin sums up the mood, “It’s an important time as green groups, business people and the Department of Public Works all agree that the goals are achievable. We now have a better understanding of what it will take to make the harbor clean. The puzzle pieces are finally in place.”
