Baltimore City and Baltimore County officials are taking the first step toward revamping the region’s troubled system that provides drinking water and treats wastewater for millions of residents in the region. Mayor Brandon M. Scott and County Executive Johnny Olszewski Jr. announced a plan Tuesday to create a task force to study the water and sewer system and come up with recommendations for how the system should be owned, run and managed. They’re working with state lawmakers and Gov. Wes Moore’s administration on legislation in the General Assembly that would create the task force and require recommendations by next January.
