Baltimore County Council Approves Resolution to Create a Water Management Authority

As reported in the Baltimore Sun, the Baltimore County Council passed a resolution requesting that the State and the counties that receive water from Baltimore City’s water system study the feasibility of creating a regional water management authority.

The city owns the aging infrastructure that pumps water from three reservoirs, treats it at three filtration plants and delivers about 265 million gallons a day to customers in the city as well as in Baltimore, Carroll, Anne Arundel and Harford counties.

Supporters contend that the City’s system with aging infrastructure would be better served by a regional body.
