Baltimore County residents in need of drinking water or who want to get rid of storm debris from Hurricane Sandy now have an option.
The county has designated eight fire stations for the public to obtain water and drop off yard and tree debris from the storm.
"We've done this in the past and we understand that this most recent storm created disruptions all across the region," County Executive Kevin Kamenetz said in a statement. "Our crews are working all across the County, and I want to make sure that we are using all of our resources to assist County residents in their cleanup efforts."
