In November 2001, the Cox Creek Citizens Oversight Committee was established by the General Assembly (Chapter 83, Acts of 2001).
The Committee monitors the redeposit of Anne Arundel County dredged material and other dredged material in the Cox Creek area near Pasadena and Masonville Cove in Curtis Bay, Anne Arundel County. This includes dredged material from Baltimore Harbor. The Committee also hears complaints lodged by individuals affected by these redeposits in the Cox Creek area.
Dredged material from the Port of Baltimore which is contaminated with heavy metals and chemicals is placed at the Cox Creek Dredged Material Containment Facility. The Cox Creek Facility is a former industrial site on the Patapsco River, and began receiving contaminated dredged material in 2005.
The twelve-member Committee is appointed by the Governor. The Committee meets three or four times a year, depending on the number of complaints to be heard. A member of the Committee serves as a liaison to the Innovative Use Advisory Council [Innovative Reuse Committee] (Code Environment Article, sec. 5-1102.1).
After a hiatus beginning in August 2010, the Committee was reactivated in July 2014.
