While large commercial properties owe the biggest amounts, not one has been shut off. All of the service cuts so far have been to homes.
And while the majority of homes with unpaid bills are in the city, nearly 90 percent of shut-offs have been in Baltimore County. Dundalk and Gwynn Oak have each had more service cuts than all of Baltimore.
Baltimore County Councilman Todd Crandell, a Republican who represents Dundalk, said he found it "odd" that his community, with a population of less than 64,000, saw more enforcement than a city more than 10 times that size. He has asked officials to verify the accuracy of their data."

Now, compare and contrast Baltimore with California and #droughtshaming - though some people seem to have got draought-shaming confusing with liberal-baiting. Really, do people still say things like "commie lover"...? Thought it was 1965 for a second. Or 1956. Shame people can't put as much effort into attacking the Koch Brothers as they do Sean Penn or watching Superbowl.
Access to water is a class issue, though. Nah - fuck it - it's a basic human right.
