Bay Restoration Fee

From the Office of Comptroller Peter Franchot – In the 2004 legislative session, the Maryland State Government took a major step to protect our waterways through the enactment of the Bay Restoration Fund (Senate Bill – 320).  The purpose of the bill was to create a dedicated fund to improve the environment and water quality of the Chesapeake Bay.  Through an environmental surcharge fee, this fund is used to upgrade wastewater treatment plants.  The Town of Federalsburg has initiated a BRF hardship exemption policy.
