County to Hold Hearing on Chesapeake Landfill

Applicants are asking for another extension to a special exception allowing for a rubble landfill in Odenton.

A company seeking to build a rubble landfill at the south edge of Odenton will request another time extension before it decides to build. 

Operators of the proposed Chesapeake Terrace Landfill will request an extension to the special exception for the landfill and sand and gravel operation. The landfill would be located off Patuxent Road to the west of Bragers Road. 

Representatives from the landfill will appear at an administrative hearing at 9:30 a.m. on Feb. 7 at the Arundel Center, located at 44 Calvert St., Annapolis. 

Operators first proposed the landfill as far back as 1990 and have received multiple extensions. Many residents of the area have opposed construction of the landfill over the years, citing concerns over the potential environmental impact. 

In March, presented its plans during a public hearing as it sought permits for water usage from the Maryland Department of Environment.
