Sewage backups and assistance policies in Baltimore
In March 2021, Baltimore City launched the Sewer Onsite Services program (SOS), which sends professional crews to clean up and disinfect homes after sewer backups, under certain circumstances. Earlier, in 2019, Baltimore City launched the Expedited Reimbursement Program, which provides reimbursements for cleanup and disinfection costs for sewer backups under certain circumstances. Both programs only cover sewage backups that the city determines were caused by wet weather.

Have you had a sewer backup within the past year? Did you report it to 311? Were you able to get assistance? We want to hear from you!

This survey is being shared by Clean Water Action, Blue Water Baltimore, and the Environmental Integrity Project.
