Innovative Reuse Committee

The Innovative Reuse Committee (IRC) was created in February 2006 to provide advice on the development of a strategy for recycling and reusing dredged material from the Baltimore Harbor. The committee issued its report to the Maryland Port Administration (MPA) in April 2007 and is currently engaged in advising on the implementation of its recommendations. The IRC meets on an as-needed basis. Staff support is provided by a team of consultants, MPA, and the Maryland Environmental Service.

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