County Proposes to Dredge St. Jerome’s Creek


LEONARDTOWN, MD - The Saint Mary’s County Department of Public Works & Transportation, in conjunction with the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers and the MD Department of Natural Resources, is proposing to dredge the Federal and State waterway navigational channels at St. Jerome’s Creek near Ridge, Maryland. The project will remove approximately 66,000 cubic yards of sand/silt from the two channels.

In order to proceed with the project, the County must secure a dredge material placement (DMP) site to receive, de-water, and permanently store the sand/silt material. At the conclusion of the project, after receiving nearly four (4) feet of material, the site will be restored with the stockpiled topsoil and stabilized with grass cover. An open site of approximately 20 acres is required, with direct access to the water and located within 1.5 miles of the mouth of St. Jerome’s Creek.

If interested in leasing or selling property for this project, please contact Scott Alexander at the St. Mary’s County Department of Public Works & Transportation at (301) 863-8400.
