A rock concert on September 15, 2012, is one way the town of Williamsport, Maryland hopes to find money to pay for stormwater improvements and other tasks needed to comply with the Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL). Town council members have stated that the Washington County town, which is located on the Potomac River, is facing an estimated $11.7 million over the next 13 years to meet obligations under Maryland’s Bay TMDL Watershed Implementation Plan. The town hopes to raise as much as $70,000 from the concert.
