Maryland residents, as of Sunday (July 1) will be paying more on their sewer bills. The state's "flush" tax will double to $5 a month, under a new law taking effect this month. That's an increase from $30 to $60 annually to upgrade wastewater treatment facilities to reduce pollution in the Chesapeake Bay. The leading advocate for the rate increasse has been Governor Martin O'Malley.
