Tomorrow, 5:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. MPT "Island Reborn." Erosion has caused huge problems for the port of Baltimore as it tries to keep its busy shipping channels open. Each year, the Maryland Port Administration dredges several million cubic yards of mud from the Chesapeake Bay. Until recently, there was controversy about what to do with this dredged material. Now the port believes it has found the answer. It's bringing back to life Poplar Island, which shrank from 1,200 acres in 1847 to five tiny islands in the early 1990s. The program explores the engineering, science and technology being used to build the new island into a wildlife sanctuary.
