After E. coli contamination, Baltimore City residents to see 25% discount on September water bills starting this week

October 26, 2022

Beginning this week, water customers in Baltimore City will see a 25% break on their bills for September, Mayor Brandon Scott said Tuesday. The discount will apply to Baltimore residents’ September monthly bills, excluding the $5 Bay Restoration Fund fee. That fee funds wastewater treatment improvements that prevent pollution from leaking into the Chesapeake Bay. Scott first announced the discount in early September, after E. coli bacteria were detected in Baltimore’s water and a boil water advisory was issued Labor Day for a large swath of West Baltimore and part of Baltimore County. When the advisory was lifted, city officials advised residents to flush their pipes and water-using appliances as a precaution.
