Final Totals for Sewer Overflows from Historic July Rainfalls

Final reports are in for sewer/stormwater overflows that occurred during the last weeks of July.  These resulted from the heaviest rainfall in Baltimore in July on record.  Much of this overflow was released through structured outfalls, designed as part of Baltimore’s sewer system more than 100 years ago. The City will close the last of these structures once the new Headworks project is operational at Back River in late 2020.

DPW Reports Updated Sewer Overflow Totals

July has been a month of historically heavy rainfall in Baltimore, and more is in the forecast this week.  These rains have resulted in large amounts of rainwater entering the City’s sewer mains, causing overflows into streams and the harbor.  The updated overflow totals of stormwater mixed with sewer water due to rain stands at 45 million gallons for the period of Saturday, July 21, through Wednesday, July 25.
