What’s happening?

Baltimore County will pay Baltimore City $3 million to settle an ongoing dispute over water services from fiscal years 2014 through 2018, Lisa Robinson reports for WBAL TV-11. 

What were the water service issues? 

Baltimore City and Baltimore County share the same drinking water and sewer systems, though city residents were charged more for their use of those systems than residents in parts of the county during the time period. 

“It’s not right. It’s not fair. Why should we have to pay all of it and they pay half of it?” said Beverly Fonseca, a city resident.

County residents were underpaying for water services due to discrepancies in the billing method between the city and the county. City residents pay one bill for water, sewer, and stormwater, as well as the operating and capital costs associated. But the bills for county residents only included water and operating costs, and sewer services were instead billed annually on the property tax assessment.  

Anything else I should know?

“We are pleased to have come to a fair and equitable resolution with Baltimore City regarding outstanding water billing dating back to prior administrations. As we move forward, we look forward to continuing to engage in conversations about ways in which we can continue to modernize and improve our system’s governance,” Baltimore County officials said in a statement.
