The Baltimore County Department of Environmental Protection and Sustainability is proposing a maintenance dredging project on the Bird River and 48 adjacent spur channels, the USACE’s Baltimore District reports. 

The work is set to be undertaken on the Bird River and Railroad Creek channels, between Loreley Beach Road on the north and Bird River Grove Road on the south, including the main channel of Bird River and 48 adjacent spur channels in Baltimore County, Maryland.

The proposed main channel work includes dredging – mechanically and/or hydraulically – of approximately 26,630 linear feet (51.3 acres) of channel 30 to 90 feet wide to depths of -5.0 feet to -4.0 feet deep mean low water, and the proposed spur channel work includes work on approximately 6,050 linear feet (4.5 acres).

According to an official announcement, the dredged material is proposed to be transferred and placed over a two-year period in the Bird River Creek Dredged Material Placement site located nearby.

In conjunction with the dredging project, the Bird River Creek Dredged Material Placement site will be excavated as part of a rehabilitation project to increase capacity.

The deadline for submitting the comments on the Bird River dredging plans is August 2, 2019.
