The Cox Creek Dredged Material Containment Facility (DMCF) is an integral part of the Maryland Port Administration’s (MPA) dredged material management plan for Baltimore Harbor. After construction in 2006, the facility initially offered a capacity of 6.4 million cubic yards. However, due to the limited number of DMCF’s, the facility was heavily used and placement capacity quickly reached 50%. Expanding the facility became a high priority to meet the demands for dredged material placement.
The expansion project included the following: demolishing former industrial buildings at the adjacent 93-acre expansion site, constructing a sediment basin for stormwater management, excavating a borrow area, widening and raising existing dikes, and constructing new dikes.
The tour is approximately 90 minute and provides a great overview of the history, operations, and expansion activities of the Cox Creek DMCF.
