Sanitary Sewer System Consent Decree

The Consent Decree was brought forth by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) against Baltimore County, to force upgrades to the aging sewer infrastructure. This was necessary for compliance with the Clean Water Act and the Maryland water pollution control laws with the goal of eliminating sanitary sewer overflows.
