Controversy develops over federal water storm treatment fees

The federal government has racked up millions of dollars in fees over storm water treatment.

Investigative reporter Mark Segraves — with our sister station WTOP radio — talked with different jurisdictions, attorneys, and the federal government, to find out who will wind up footing the bill.

Online Chat: Beth Killoran, deputy assistant secretary for Information Technology and chief information officer at HHS, on March 28.
