Maryland Governor Calls for Cleanup of Conowingo Dam
Maryland Governor Larry Hogan says he is urging Pennsylvania to do something about the pollution problem that is coming from the Conowingo Dam.
And with the recent rains he told WBOC that there was concern about the debris that has been piling up on the northern side of the dam.
One solution, he said, was a pilot project to dredge the dam which has not been cleared out in the last 80 years.
But he told the station that dredging is “a million dollar question.”
Earlier this month Maryland asked Exelon which owns the dam to help with bay restoration.
The company said its employees and other workers could assist with debris cleanup.
