Baltimore’s historic dumping place for all its waste and sewage was its waterways. How has the city’s sewage management changed over time and how healthy are Baltimore’s waterways today? This presentation shares information about the current health of our urban watershed and actions you can take to improve the health of our waterways.

The mission of Blue Water Baltimore is to protect and restore Baltimore’s waterways through enforcement, fieldwork, and citizen action. Our ultimate goal is to make our waterways safe for recreation (including fishing and swimming), to improve public health, and to improve the health of our ecosystem.
