BALTIMORE, MD (July 1, 2013) – Public Works Director, Alfred H. Foxx, today announced that the Baltimore City Department of Public Works (DPW) will hold the first Liberty Reservoir Day on Saturday, July 27, 2013 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Liberty Dam, Liberty Dam Rd., 21104. The event will celebrate and educate attendees about Liberty Dam and Reservoir, one of Baltimore's three raw drinking-water reservoirs. Live entertainment, face-painting, emergency vehicle displays and food trucks will be on site. Active and former military members with ID will receive discounts on food purchases. Attendees will also receive American flags to celebrate both our “liberty” and “Liberty”.

Attendees of all ages can visit the Dam’s observation deck which will be open only for this special day. Learn about Baltimore's drinking water system, resource issues and conservation efforts. Rescued native wildlife will be on display along with experts who will tell you all about them.

The event will also recognize the people and, yes, animals, who protect the reservoirs and reservoir visitors. Attendees will see demonstrations from the Chesapeake Search Dogs, three fire companies and local police officials.

“We are excited about highlighting Liberty Dam and Reservoir which are important parts of our regional drinking-water system,” says DPW Director Alfred H. Foxx. “This is a wonderful opportunity to learn while having fun.”

Participating organizations include: Baltimore City Department of Public Works, Gamber & Community Fire Company, Liberty Road Volunteer Fire Company, Sykesville Freedom District Fire Department, Carroll County Sheriff’s Office, Baltimore Environmental Police, Chesapeake Search Dogs, Scales and Tales, Baltimore County Department of Environmental Protection and Sustainability, and the Carroll County Department of Land Use, Planning and Development.

The event and parking are free.
