Trash the Litter, Not Your River! – Meeting to Develop a Countywide Trash-Reduction Strategy

By means of wind, runoff and dumping, the litter in your community eventually ends up in the nearest waterway. Your local rivers, streams and lakes are now polluted with thousands of pounds of trash.

We want to hear from you what you perceive as the biggest sources of litter and what programs are (or could be) the most effective in tackling this pervasive and unwieldy problem. Baltimore County Department of Environmental Protection and Sustainability is hosting community meetings around the county to help in the development of a countywide Trash Reduction Strategy.

Meeting

  • June 4
    6 to 7:30 p.m.
    Patapsco High School Auditorium
    8100 Wise Avenue, Baltimore, Maryland 21222

Information: Erin Wisnieski at watersheds@baltimorecountymd.gov or 410-887-5683

Major Improvement to Water Lines

In early October, the Department of Public Works began renovating 90,000 feet of water line in Dundalk. Conduits which lie between North Point Road, Merritt Boulevard, Stansbury Road and Bear Creek are being cleaned and lined with cement to improve water quality and fire protection. This is a long-term project expected to take three years and cost $4.3 million. Crews have recently resumed work after a period of winter shut-down and have completed about 2 percent of the project.
