The Jones Falls River flows right through Baltimore City.  But you might not even know it’s there.  Portions of it are covered by the JFX and other portions are completely underground.  Yet this river has played an important role in the development and history of this area.  It has been declared an open sewer, yet people still fight for it and are trying to reverse the flow of pollution, industry and time.

Listen to the Baltimore Icons story below and check out Blue Water Baltimore’s website to find out more about the Jones Falls.
