Environmental groups file suit over Maryland’s new stormwater permit for industrial facilities, arguing it’s inadequate

In three separate suits filed Friday and Monday in Baltimore County Circuit Court, the nonprofits argued that Maryland officials failed to adequately consider factors such as increased rainfall due to climate change while drafting the new permit — and that it won’t do enough to slow pollution flowing into state waterways.
