Public Notice: Atlantic Coast of Maryland Shoreline Protection Project

Preparation of Supplementary Environmental Assessment Offshore Shoals in Federal Waters as Sand Sources

All Interested Parties: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Baltimore District (USACE), in partnership with the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (MD DNR), is proposing to dredge offshore shoals in federal waters to obtain sand for the Atlantic Coast of Maryland Shoreline Protection Project (project) by the year 2022.

The project is located in the Town of Ocean City, Worcester County, Maryland. The project places sand on the beach of Ocean City, generally every four years, to reduce risk of coastal storm damage.

The most recent beach replenishment contract, completed in December 2017, exhausted the sand from nearby offshore shoals in state waters. USACE and MD DNR have sometimes placed sand on Ocean City beach more frequently than every four years following severe storms, and sand from federal waters may be needed sooner than 2022.
