The Baltimore City Department of Public Works (DPW) will hold the third of five public meetings to offer residents and other stakeholders the opportunity to comment on updates to the city’s 10-Year Solid Waste Management Plan. This online meeting will be held Monday, March 27 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
"While there is still work to be done, we are pleased to report that Synagro Technologies Inc. is conducting repairs to their centrifuge machines – devices used in waste processing to separate solids from liquids – and have begun testing the systems for their centrifuge odor control mechanisms."
Federal and City officials are investigating the cause of an explosion that occurred Wednesday morning at Synagro Technologies Facility at the Back River Wastewater Treatment Facility. The incident happened just before 12:00 p.m. as contractors from Synagro Technologies Inc. were working. The explosion and fire caused extensive fire damage to Synagro’s building on the property at the treatment facility.
Mayor Brandon M. Scott and Department of Public Works (DPW) Director Jason W. Mitchell have announced a new strategy, the DPW Unbundling Initiative that will mentor Baltimore-based diverse and small businesses and prepare them to compete on their own as general or prime contractors.
