County seeks permits to dig Cattail channel

The county Department of Public Works is seeking permission to dig a 2,600-foot navigation channel through the Magothy River's Cattail Creek and 30 spur channels to individual piers.

Waterfront property owners also have proposed five new piers or moorings on the creek, which runs between the Berrywood and Fair Oaks communities.

More than 25,000 cubic yards of sand and silt would be pumped from the creek bottom to an 11-acre disposal site on Edwin Raynor Boulevard, near Magothy Bridge Road.

The county needs federal and state permits to complete the project.

The Army Corps of Engineers and the state departments of the Environment and Natural Resources will accept public comment on the potential impact of the project until Jan. 6.

Information: 962-4253.
