Subject: [CPEO-MEF] DISPOSAL: Harford County (MD) incinerator at Aberdeen Proving Ground
Harford bill may allow incinerator near park
Hearing, vote Tuesday on buying site by Cunion Field

Harford County residents will have a chance to raise questions Tuesday about a controversial bill that would allow the county to build a waste-to-energy incinerator near Cunion Field, an Edgewood park popular with local children and their families.

The Harford County Council is to vote on the measure, Bill No. 09-36, at a public hearing at 6 p.m. Tuesday. The bill would allow the county to purchase Prologis Park, a 113-acre commercial lot in Edgewood, for $4.9 million.

The intent of the acquisition, administrators say, is to allow the county to create a new access road to an existing waste-to-energy incinerator at Aberdeen Proving Ground, a facility that has turned Harford County solid waste into energy-producing steam since 1986.

The county, state and Army have been working on a deal that would greatly expand the site, which stands on 13 acres at the Army base. The $400 million expansion would quadruple the incinerator's capacity to 1,500 tons a day, double the number of delivery trucks in and out of the site, and open the facility to waste from other counties.
