City officials say water pressure largely restored at Poe Homes in West Baltimore

City officials say they have “turned a corner” in restoring water pressure to the Poe Homes public housing complex in West Baltimore.

Ingrid Antonio, spokeswoman for the Housing Authority of Baltimore City, said city inspectors are finding consistent water pressure of around 40 pounds per square inch during quality checks of units in the complex, adding, “with confidence,” that service has been restored in some capacity to all of the complex.

Water pressure of 40 to 45 pounds per square inch is considered typical for residential use by Popular Mechanics.
