Maryland county launches $100 million project with Corvias Solutions

​Prince George’s County has entered a partnership with private company Corvias Solutions to manage the Maryland county’s storm water infrastructure, according to the Washington Post.

  Prince George’s County will provide the financing while Corvias will operate using the funds collected from the storm water fees Gov. Larry Hogan (R) derided as the “rain tax.” Corvias will not be paid unless all of the goals of the project are met, according to the article. County officials can terminate the contract at any time and have the option of seeking private financing in the future.

  The project includes retrofitting thousands of acres of public and private land designed to capture and treat runoff before pollutants flow into the Chesapeake Bay.
