Public Meeting on Knapps Narrows Dredging

The Baltimore District of the Army Corps of Engineers is planning to perform maintenance dredging for the Federal navigation channel at Knapps Narrows, Talbot County, Maryland.  

The proposed work consists of dredging the Knapps Narrows to its authorized depth of 9 feet (MLLW) and a width of 75 feet.

USACE plans to hydraulically dredge approximately 100,000 cubic yards of material. The dredged material will be placed via pipeline to the previously used upland site located on approximately 20 acres of the Donnell-Jones Farm.

The Baltimore District will hold a public meeting for all concerned citizens. Representatives from the Baltimore District Army Corps of Engineers and Talbot County will be present. The meeting will be held on Monday August 24, 2015 at 5:00 PM at the Tilghman Island Fire Station.
