Clean Water Starts On Land

See How People in Baltimore are Making a Difference

This video highlights the amazing way that Baltimore's urban neighborhoods are coming together to improve the city. From painting storm drains with Blue Water Baltimore to planting trees in McElderry Park to picking up trash at Fort McHenry with the National Aquarium, the citizens of Baltimore are working to green their communities. In the video, Laura Bankey, the National Aquarium's Director of Conservation, explains that the value of partnerships is immeasurable. Kim Burgess, Baltimore City's Surface Water Management Chief, explains why a stormwater utility will help the city.
