Meeting on Cox Creek Expansion Set for Next Week
The Maryland Port Administration will be holding a public information meeting for the proposed expansion of the Cox Creek Dredge Material Containment Facility on March 10th 2015.
Expansion at the Cox Creek Dredged Material Containment Facility is needed as the Port of Baltimore prepares to receive larger container vessels.
The existing area has a capacity of 5 million cubic yards, according to the Maryland Environmental Service. The proposed expansion will double the size of dredge containment site in Pasadena by 2019.
The MPA will hold the meeting in the Orchard Beach Volunteer Fire Department Banquet Hall on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m.
