Hawkins Point is a neighborhood in the South District of Baltimore, located at the southern tip of the city between Curtis Bay (north) and the Anne Arundel County line (south) and Thoms Cove (east). Although its land area covers 2.6 square miles (6.7 km2), the population of Hawkins Point was estimated at just 10 people in 2009. The neighborhood is predominantly industrial.[2]

Industrial residents of Hawkins Point include the Quarantine Road Sanitary Landfill, owned by Baltimore City,[3] a 67-acre hazardous waste landfill at 5501 Quarantine Road, owned by the Maryland Port Administration (MPA)[4] and now a Superfund site and a foundry at 4000 Hawkins Point Road owned by Eastalco Aluminum Company.[5]

Hazardous waste landfill

In January 2011, the Maryland Department of the Environment approved use of the MPA landfill by Millennium Inorganic Chemicals (a subsidiary of Cristal Global) to dispose of coal ash from three coal-fired power plants operating in the Baltimore area.[6] The site of the hazardous waste landfill was purchased by the MPA in 1958 to dispose of chrome ore processing residue from a former manufacturing site in Baltimore of AlliedSignal, now used by the Port of Baltimore.[4]

Millennium Inorganic plant ceases manufacturing

Cristal Global announced that it has permanently ceased manufacturing at its Hawkins Point plant on August 10, 2010. Located on a 318-acre site at 3901 Fort Armistead Road, the plant was used by the former Millennium Inorganic Chemicals since 1954 to manufacture titanium dioxide. The plant was idled by Cristal Global during March 2009 in response to a severe downturn in market conditions.[7][8]

Other industrial residents of Hawkins Point include: Reichold Chemicals, Inc. at 6401 Chemical Road; Grace Division, Curtis Bay Works at 5500 Chemical Road; USG Corporation at 5500 Quarantine Road; and BOC Gases at 3901 Fort Armistead Road.[9]
