Bay development will be studied

August 14, 1992

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Senate has approved spending $700,000 for a federal study of environmental and navigation problems caused by development around Maryland's fragile coastal bays.

The Army Corps of Engineers will coordinate the study if funds are approved in a conference with the House, said Sen. Paul S. Sarbanes.

The study will look at how resort development in Ocean City and along the mainland shores of Assawoman, Isle of Wight, Sinepuxent and Chincoteague bays in Worcester County has affected ground water, flooding, shoreline erosion and boating access.
