DPW lifts voluntary water restriction nearly a month after pumping station fire

August 10, 2023

Baltimore’s Department of Public Works on Wednesday ended its request for residents in the city and surrounding counties to voluntarily limit their water usage, nearly a month after a fire damaged a pumping station in Parkville. The July 13 fire at the Cromwell pumping station heavily damaged equipment inside the station, including two pumps, DPW previously said. Cromwell serves the northeastern portion of the city, along with Towson, Hunt Valley, Cockeysville, Timonium and Sparks, Tim Wolfe, chief of the office of engineering and construction at DPW, told The Banner last month.
