BALTIMORE, MD. (Monday, March 28, 2022) — Mayor Brandon M. Scott released the following statement in response to action taken by the Maryland Department of the Environment.

"The Back River and Patapsco Wastewater Treatment Plants have had issues that long predate my administration. We are committed to working with the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) and the Maryland Environmental Service (MES) to get both of these facilities into compliance. This will not be an overnight fix but we must work collaboratively and combine our resources in order to ensure clean and healthy communities not just for our residents, but also for the wildlife that calls the Chesapeake Bay home."
