Marylanders Pitch In To Help

When Mississippi Sounds the Call

Severe weather emergencies can overwhelm even a prepared public facility. When leaders in Jackson, Mississippi, faced record rainfalls set to overwhelm water and wastewater systems, they tapped into an intergovernmental network of facility staff outside their state. Maryland has dispatched staff from the bi-county Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission and Anne Arundel County to pitch in and help support safe residential drinking water in the most heavily affected communities.

Conduit Street has your coverage, as Maryland is proud to lend a hand and exemplify public service at its finest. We wish the workers and residents of Jackson a speedy path to recovery.
