Citizens Advisory Committee

The Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) provides advice to the Maryland Port Administration (MPA) and its Dredged Material Management Program (DMMP) partners on dredging issues. Participants represent communities, local governments, recreational and commercial users of the Bay and environmental interests. The chair of CAC sits on the Management Committee and reports to the Executive Committee. The committee meets quarterly and is staffed by a consultant.

To contact committee members, send an e-mail to or call the Maryland Port Administration at 410-385-4438.
