Conowingo Dam Sediment Characterization and Innovative Reuse

In coordination with Maryland Environmental Service and the Maryland Department of the Environment, Northgate is characterizing 90 years of accumulated sediment behind the Conowingo Dam and developing solutions for cost-effective remedies to reduce sediment and nutrient flux to the upper Chesapeake Bay. Tasks include performing a data gap analysis; sediment characterization; nutrient and sediment flux modeling; dredging and sediment reuse bench-scale demonstration; and an economic and societal cost-benefit analysis.
