This booklet summarizes the Water Quality Management Plan for the Baltimore Metropolitan Region. The Plan, published in 1978, details the water pollution problems in the region, and recommends actions to correct them, including cooperative agreements and legal arrangements among local governments. Water quality management plans were developed throughout the United States after the passage of the 1977 Clean Water Act, whose goals were to make water clean enough for fishing and swimming by 1983, and to eliminate pollution from industrial and municipal wastes by 1985.
