GBA has been involved in the design, and development of the Masonville Dredged Material Containment Facility (DMCF) since conceptual planning began in 2002. The facility was required to become operational in 2010 to provide dredged material placement capacity for the Maryland Port Administration (MPA). The project consisted of the construction of 5,100 feet of earthen dike along the west and northern alignment, a 1,000-foot active vessel berth along the eastern alignment, and 5,700 feet of landside dike along the southern alignment. The dikes were initially constructed to El. +10, and will be incrementally raised, as the demand warrants, to El. +42. The facility will provide 12.5 million cubic yards (MCY) of capacity to assist the MPA in meeting their 20-year dredged material management plan (DMMP) goals for the Baltimore Harbor. Engineering and design services are on-going.
