Water And Sewer Operating Fund (FY 2020 Budget of $104.9 Million)

This fund is restricted for the operation and maintenance of the County’s water and reclaimed water sewer systems. The County does not own or operate any water supply facilities but instead purchases 95% of its potable water from Baltimore City and 5% from the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission. The money to fund services comes primarily from water and sewer user charges imposed on customers in the Metropolitan District. This fund is self-sustaining and does not depend upon general tax dollars.
