Faulty water meters cost Baltimore city, county millions
BALTIMORE (AP) — A report says Baltimore and Baltimore County have lost millions of dollars in revenue due to problems with their water billing system.
The findings released Monday by inspector generals in the jurisdictions says more than 22,000 digital water meters have operational issues.
Officials says many of them indicate water has not been used at a location resulting in the revenue loss.
The inspector generals wrote “a fundamental lack of communication" between the city and county is central to the problem.
