Healing Baltimore's Harbor: A Pipe Dream?

Baltimore's Inner Harbor is a source of pride for city residents, but every year millions of gallons of sewage seep into waterways that drain to the harbor, along with tons of trash from storm-water runoff. This dangerous pollution is a threat to anyone who comes in contact with the water. Is the Inner Harbor salvageable? The short answer is yes – but it is going to take a lot of work.
