Pearce Creek

Federal, state and local officials are working to seal the Pearce Creek Dredge Material Containment Area in Earleville, seen here, and provide public water to nearby residents.

ANNAPOLIS — State Sen. Steve Hershey (R-Upper Shore) recently introduced a bill in the General Assembly to require the Maryland Port Authority to file a complete water remediation plan for the residents of the Earleville communities surrounding the Pearce Creek Dredge Material Containment Area before it could resume disposing of spoils at the site.
