The 2015 Healthy Harbor Report Card is out and it came as no surprise that the Inner Harbor’s water quality received a failing grade. Again. We recently outlined seven big ideas underway to reduce the Baltimore-area’s sewage, trash, and stormwater pollution that flows into the Inner Harbor.

But since the 2010 launch of the Healthy Harbor Initiative, which brought government, nonprofits, and the community together, the team has built in expertise, focus, finances and resolve. While we must ensure a lot of infrastructure work happens before 2020, we just may be swimming this harbor after all.”
