BENEFICIAL USES OF DREDGED MATERIAL IN THE UPPER CHESAPEAKE BAY. The use of dredged estuarine sediments has been widely advocated in Maryland as a natural resource for island restoration, marsh creation and enhancement, and shoreline stabilization, and as an economic resource for making marketable products, thereby providing a solution for dredged material management that . I walked out to the blighted waterfront using directions from Susan Langley, state underwater archaeologist for Maryland. There, adjacent to a sailing club’s floating pier and Baltimore’s Museum of Industry, amid the rubble and marine debris from centuries of intense use by the Chesapeake’s maritime industries, was the wreck of a once-graceful steamer. Bay, including improvements to the foot-deep C & D Canal. On the o t h e r, environmental groups like the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, appre-hensive about possible enviro n m e n t a l impacts, strongly oppose dumping d r edged sediment in the Bay’s deeper waters. Many Bay-area citizens have joined in an effort to halt the re o p e n -.

Introduction.

  The Chesapeake Bay is not only North America's largest estuary, but it is also home to one of most comprehensive computational modeling efforts that seeks to study and integrate a very large range of the complex socio-ecological dynamics within its watershed. Known as the Chesapeake Bay Modeling System (CBMS), this suite of models are invaluable to scientists, environmental Cited by: 1 2 Ma GUIDE FOR CHESAPEAKE BAY JURISDICTIONS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF PHASE II WATERSHED IMPLEMENTATION PLANS This Guide addresses the development and review of the Chesapeake Bay TMDL Phase II Watershed Implementation Plans (WIPs) to be submitted by Delaware, Maryland, New York. The Chesapeake Bay is the largest estuary in the United States and is home to unique biodiversity. The Bay plays an important role in local commerce and history, and is a critical environmental resource. The Chesapeake Bay Water Quality Project is a project-based, citizen science educational initiative that engages students in 21st century.   Since bay cleanup began, states in the Chesapeake watershed have relied on the dam to limit the flow of sediment and phosphorous further downstream, and the plan was to .
