Today the Maryland Board of Public Works approved a contract to Belden-Eco Products LLC to study the feasibility of using dredged sediment from Port of Baltimore shipping channels for manufacturing bricks and pavers. The innovative reuse of dredged material as recycled ceramic bricks and permeable pavers could be beneficial to Chesapeake Bay stormwater management solutions and also recover capacity and extend the lifespan of sediment containment facilities like Cox Creek in Baltimore. The MDOT MPA is a nationally-renowned leader in the beneficial reuse of dredged material. Pictured here is Port Executive Director William P. Doyle with Kristen Fidler, Holly Miller, and Kristen Keene of the MDOT MPA at Cox Creek.
