Baltimore harbor water still gets failing grade, but less rain in 2016 shows potential

The Baltimore harbor water is still not swimmable or fishable, earning yet another failing great on the annual quality study, but less rainfall in 2016 shows tackling the sewage issues will go a long way to meeting the 2020 goal.

The Waterfront Partnership, in collaboration with Blue Water Baltimore, released the 2016 Healthy Harbor Report Card and again rated the overall health of the harbor as F. This is the fourth consecutive failing grade for the harbor following a change in data collection techniques from the first two years.
