The city is seeking payment from those who owe more than $250 or more, dating back at least half a year. Water rates have increased over the past three years by a total of 42 percent, with another 11 percent increase due to take effect this July, according Baltimore Brew.
The problem of non-payment is also not entirely the fault of customers unable or unwilling to pay. The Baltimore Sun found out the city’s Department of Public Works had chronic problems with billing, which included sending customers inflated statements. The department halted billing to improve accuracy, but this action caused further delays.
