A plume of an unknown substance has polluted the Baltimore’s inner harbor waterfront, this afternoon Thursday, June 28th, 2018.
Investigators have determined that it could possibly be from a storm drain leakage, this was later confirmed to be true and was caused by a drainage improvement project according to a report by the Baltimore Sun.
Investigators are calling this a “major pollution event”, however, the leak is non-hazardous according to the Waterkeeper team.
If the inner harbor wasn’t already dirty enough this just made it worse. I don’t think that anyone should be swimming or going anywhere near the water at this point.
I was hoping that one day in the future the inner harbors water would be clean enough to swim in however at this pace it will be too toxic.
