University of Baltimore to Work on Patapsco River Cleanup

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is awarding $2.1 million to 37 organizations, among them the University of Baltimore, to help protect and restore urban waters, improve water quality, and support community revitalization and other local priorities.

The University of Baltimore will use its $59,827 EPA grant to help clean up the Patapsco River watershed.

The funding is through EPA’s Urban Waters program, which supports communities in their efforts to access, improve and benefit from their urban waters and the surrounding land.

Today’s Urban Waters grant to the University of Baltimore is yet another example of EPA’s commitment to the City of Baltimore and surrounding communities as they work to create a healthier, sustainable future,” said EPA Regional Administrator Shawn M. Garvin.

Urban Waters Federal Partnership is made up of 13 federal agencies working to reconnect urban communities with their waterways by improving coordination among federal agencies and collaborating with community-led revitalization efforts. The urban waters include canals, rivers, lakes, wetlands, aquifers, estuaries, bays and oceans in urbanized areas.
