New Director of MPA Dredging

The Maryland Port Administration (MPA) has named Christina E. Correale to oversee its dredging program as its new director of harbor development.

Ms. Correale comes to the MPA after five years as principal of the EcoLogix Group, where her duties included serving as a senior advisor to the MPA on dredged material management projects.

She previously was chief of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Baltimore District Operations Division, where she oversaw all aspects of its navigation program, including Baltimore Harbor and its channels operations and maintenance.

Dredging has become a very critical component of furthering the MPA’s mission of promoting waterborne commerce through Maryland in a way that provides economic benefits for our state,” said MPA Executive Director James J. White.

Without continuous dredging of our channels, massive ships that continue to increase in size would not be able to reach the Port of Baltimore and support thousands of good-paying jobs. Christina Correale is uniquely qualified to lead this department and continue the Port of Baltimore’s outstanding reputation as a national leader in dredged material management.

In her new role, Ms. Correale will oversee the selection, environmental feasibility, engineering and design, construction and operation of dredged material placement sites, with a specific importance placed upon beneficial and innovative reuse.

Ms. Correale began her new duties with the MPA last week.
