Flush Fee In Action

The Board of Public Works recently approved grants totaling $18.6 million for planning and design of improvements to the Patapsco and Back River plants. The plants are two of the most active in processing sewage for the Baltimore metro region, and the proposed upgrades will help prevent 7.5 million pounds nitrogen from entering the Bay annually. The funds for the projects will come from the $76 million already collected by the $30/year fee.
