WATER IS A HUMAN RIGHT

Baltimore
Maryland State

On July 1, 2018, water rates in Baltimore will shoot up by 9%, and 40% of Baltimoreans will pay more for water than the UN’s minimum standard for affordable water.

Already, many people are losing their homes due to unpaid water bills.

We worked hard at the city and state level over the last year to make sure that Baltimoreans stop losing their homes to tax sales because of water bills, but we have a lot more to do.
