At a Tuesday hearing, Baltimore City's Department of Public Works agreed to lift reimbursement restrictions for residents dealing with sewage backups in and around their homes.
On top of plans to help with future cleanup, the department said they would eliminate a rule that currently requires residents to report a sewage backup within 24 hours in order to qualify for fast reimbursement.
Normally reimbursement tops out at $2,500, but the department says they will increase that amount to $5000.
