DPW to Hold Virtual Public Meeting to Provide Updates on City’s Modified Sanitary Consent Decree
Tuesday Dec 14th, 2021
On Thursday, January 20, 2022, the Baltimore City Department of Public Works (DPW) will hold its Annual Consent Decree Public Information Session, which will be held virtually beginning at 6 p.m.
The annual meeting provides an opportunity for residents to receive information about the City’s Modified Consent Decree, a legal agreement between the City of Baltimore and Federal and State regulators, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Maryland Department of the Environment, to address sanitary overflows from the sewer collection system.
Residents will be able to ask questions of DPW experts remotely in a virtual meeting room. The virtual room will feature learning stations that will cover topics such as the preventive maintenance programs, the Headworks Project, and the Sewage Onsite Support (SOS) Cleanup Program and Expedited Reimbursement Program for basement backups caused by wet-weather events.
