DPW to Hold Virtual Public Meeting to Provide Updates on City’s Modified Sanitary Consent Decree 
Register Now for the Thursday, Jan. 20 Online Meeting

Baltimore City Department of Public Works (DPW) will hold its Annual Consent Decree Public Information Session on Thursday, January 20, 2022, 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 preventive maintenance programs, the Headworks Project, and the Expedited Reimbursement Program for basement backups caused by wet-weather events. 

Last year, 2021, was the first time DPW hosted the Sanitary Sewer Modified Consent Decree annual public information session virtually. For the convenience and safety of the community, DPW will be hosting the meeting online again this year.
