Environmentalists fear Maryland Comptroller Louis L. Goldstein's planned visit to a narrow-mouthed cove off the Severn River this morning could emasculate the state's wetland protection program.Mr. Goldstein, who sits on the state Board of Public Works, proposed the visit March 10 after a waterfront property owner asked for permission to dig a boating channel between the river and the cove, known as Shady Lake.The board must approve all dredging projects within state waters. Mr. Goldstein's visit suggests the board may be willing to approve the dredging, though it has been opposed by almost every state agency involved, environmentalists say."

The energy company Dominion said Tuesday that it is exploring developing an alternate evacuation route for some residential neighbors of its proposed Cove Point liquefied natural gas plant, prompting opponents to question anew assertions by the company and federal regulators that the facility poses no significant safety or environmental risks. Karl R. Neddenien, spokesman for the Richmond, Va.-based company, declined to offer details but said Dominion is "looking into" establishing an alternate route for residents living on Cove Point to get away should there be an emergency at the facility.

Tar Cove in Pasadena's Sillery Bay is safe for swimming and other recreational activities, Anne Arundel County health officials say. Thursday, the county Health Department lifted an advisory issued early last week when water-quality tests showed bacteria levels in the cove near Gibson Island were more than three times the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's acceptable levels of 104 organisms per 100 milliliters. Further testing has shown that the bacteria level has decreased to 10 organisms per 100 milliliters.

The Home Run Derby competitors won't have to worry so much (not that they would) about hitting boaters in the celebrated McCovey Cove area just beyond right field at AT&T Park, as officials are banning all motorized boats, and all nonmotorized boats longer than 20 feet, starting Saturday through the All-Star Game on Tuesday. In the funniest All-Star development, Shana Daum, a Giants spokeswoman, said all media, save (natch) for Fox and ESPN, which have television rights, will be barred from taking their own boats out to the cove, but can pay $200 to board a charter to cover events.

The shallowness of Mathias Cove off Main Creek prevents George and Carol Stromberg from enjoying their 28-foot powerboat as much as they want to."We'd like to go out every Saturday and Sunday if we could," said Carol Stromberg, who has lived on the cove for three years. "But we went out only four times this summer."That's why the Strombergs and 10 other residents who own cove property have asked the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the state Department of the Environment to dredge as much as five feet of sediment from the bottom of the cove.

HAVRE DE GRACE -- Now that the newness has worn off and buyers are settling into Canvasback Cove, a condominium project in Havre de Grace, developers and longtime residents are breathing cautious sighs of relief.The modern blue and white condos of Canvasback Cove lie at the foot of Revolution Street on prime waterfront property along the Susquehanna River. The project claimed one of the few remaining parcels of real estate left on the water.And the three-story condos themselves are vastly different from the 18th century Victorian homes that line the streets of this small, historic town.

Ever since the Days Cove section of Gunpowder Falls State Park was acquired by the state in 1986, the land has been closed to the general public amid an effort to preserve its wetlands and build more lakes.Forty inner-city schoolchildren have been assisting the effort through the Days Cove Environmental Education Center.Last Thursday, 26 of the boys and girls -- most of them sporting blue and white "Save the Bay" sun visors -- planted trees, grasses, and aquatic vegetation around one of the man-made lakes at 2,000-acre Days Cove.

Authorities are continuing a search for a man missing since Sunday afternoon after he and two friends went swimming in Liberty Reservoir.

Federal regulators gave final approval Monday for energy company Dominion to build the East Coast's first natural gas liquefaction plant at its Cove Point site in Calvert County, a project that has raised concerns from neighbors and environmentalists. The $3.8 billion project would allow Dominion to export liquefied natural gas through the facility on the Chesapeake Bay. It plans to complete the project and begin exporting by June 2017, adding about 75 jobs to the approximately 100 already at the site.

Let's face it: Summer's over. But still, warm weather and plenty of daylight have me trying to squeeze those last few drops from the season. Read: Drink outdoors as frequently as possible. One of my favorite places to do so as of late has been at Sunset Cove in Bowleys Quarters in Baltimore County. The waterfront destination's sand, palm trees and boat slips are transformative enough to make you feel as if you're somewhere far away from life's reality. Its extensive cocktail list, filled with tiki-themed favorites and specialty crushes, make the tropical transporting even more seamless.

A Calvert County circuit judge has overturned the Southern Maryland county's decision to exempt the proposed Cove Point liquefied natural gas export facility from local zoning regulations. It's not clear, however, whether the decision affects plans for the $3.4 billion project. Judge James P. Salmon declared that Calvert County acted illegally in freeing Cove Point, now the site of a liquefied natural gas import terminal, from having to comply with the county's zoning ordinance. In doing so, the judge said, county officials violated Maryland's constitution by treating Dominion, the Virginia-based energy company that owns the site, differently from other property owners.

Two dozen protesters were arrested in Washington Monday after they blocked entrances to the federal commission reviewing a proposed natural gas export terminal and liquefaction plant in Southern Maryland. Protesters opposed to exporting liquefied natural gas through Cove Point in Lusby sat down in front of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission 's headquarters. Some held signs, including one calling the agency the "Fracking Expansion Rubberstamp Commission" and another warning that the project was "risky business.

A proposed liquefied natural gas facility in Calvert County could put nearby residents at "significant risk" if a fire or explosion occurs, according to a British consulting firm hired by opponents of the project to review its hazards. Ricardo-AEA, commissioned by some nearby residents and the Chesapeake Climate Action Network, concluded that plans to convert the Cove Point import terminal for liquefied natural gas into one processing and exporting large quantities of the volatile fuel pose additional, possibly "intolerable" risks for workers at the site and people living within eight-tenths of a mile of it. "My view is that the project shouldn't be allowed to go forward, unless the applicant can demonstrate that the risks are not 'intolerable,' and that the risks have been reduced to a level which is as low as reasonably practicable," said Mark Broomfield, author of the report.

In its permit ruling last month, the Maryland Public Service Commission stated that the proposed Cove Point liquefied natural gas refinery is not in the public interest and would be a net economic negative for the state. That should have been the end of the discussion and the project should have been denied ( "Cove Point natural gas export facility gets state OK," May 30). Instead, the PSC thinks that if Dominion shells out $48 million for absolution for the harm they will cause to the environment and economy, it will be acceptable.

Ulmstead Cove residents don't have big plans for their waterfront.They just want a modest pier -- an L-shaped, wooden structure that would reach 30 feet into Forked Creek and give the community better access to a small patch of the Chesapeake Bay, making it easier to crab, fish and swim."

Energy company Dominion said Monday that it formally accepted Maryland regulators' conditions for their approval of a power plant the company needs to export liquefied natural gas from its Southern Maryland complex. Maryland's Public Service Commission said Dominion could build the 130-megawatt generating facility only if the company contributed $48 million toward funds set up for clean energy efforts, energy efficiency and low-income utility bill assistance. Regulators said the project otherwise would provide no net economic benefit to Marylanders.
