Maryland DNR: Coastal Resiliency Program Expands to Anne Arundel

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources’ Board of Public Works yesterday unanimously approved dedicated funding of two Coastal Resiliency Grant Program projects in Anne Arundel County to help communities enhance their resiliency to the effects of climate change, extreme storms and weather.

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources is helping to design six shoreline improvement demonstration projects statewide to implement on-the-ground natural and nature-based restoration projects, including living shorelines, marsh enhancements and stormwater management systems in vulnerable areas throughout Maryland.

In Anne Arundel County, the department will partner with the West/Rhode Riverkeeper to design a climate-resilient living shoreline at Franklin Point State Park.

The proposed 2,500 linear foot project will stabilize the existing peninsula to increase resiliency of the park and nearby town of Shady Side. Additionally, the department is working to align dredging operations to pilot the beneficial use of dredged material at the location.

Additionally, the department will work with the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay and Longview Civic Association to design a climate-resilient living shoreline at Longview on the Magothy, a community of more than 100 homeowners in Arnold.

The proposed 250 linear foot project will include removal of 190 feet of bulkhead, protection of a tidal pond, and stabilization of the community shoreline with natural features.

Both  grantees will work with staff and coastal engineers to complete designs and will partner with local communities to ensure an open and transparent process.

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
