When millions of gallons of water erupted in mid-September from a ruptured 72-inch water main flooding dozens of Dundalk homes, Baltimore County Executive Jim Smith got help quickly from state and local officials all over Central Maryland. "You need everybody in these situations," he said Tuesday, standing between large utility vehicles in a Howard County public works yard with county executives Ken Ulman, Anne Arundel's John R. Leopold, and Harford's David Craig. With a written agreement among the four county executives who represent about a quarter of Maryland's population, help will be automatic and fast when water or wastewater pipes fail.

In eight days, the Baltimore-via-North Carolina post-wave trio Future Islands will release "On the Water," the band's accomplished third album. NPR is streaming the entire album here , so give it a run-through before you decide if it deserves the accolades it'll likely receive. (Over/under on a Pitchfork score? I'd take the over at 8.0.) There are plenty of highlights, including "Great Fire," a track that features Wye Oak's Jenn Wasner on vocals. More Future Islands coverage to come.

I saw utility truck workers from other locales sitting by the roadside doing nothing. When I asked them what was going on, the answer was always the same: "We were waiting for orders from BGE and never got them.
