What Lies Beneath

A new book by Ann Royston Blouse and Cynthia Schäfer Mann.

Available NOW from HSBC 

The Baltimore municipal water system supplies more than 1.8 million people in Baltimore City and parts of its surrounding counties. How did the reservoir system come to be? Why are the reservoirs in Baltimore County owned and managed by Baltimore City? What are the lost landscapes under Loch Raven, Prettyboy, and Liberty Reservoirs? This book tells these stories, illustrated by historic photographs, primarily from the collections of the Baltimore City Department of Public Works and the Historical Society of Baltimore County.

Ann Royston Blouse and Cynthia Schäfer Mann are long-time volunteers at the Historical Society, with a collective thirty years of research experience in Baltimore County history.
