It is an understatement to say the Delaware Chapter is concerned about the impact beach replenishment is having on our surfing resources. But without hysterics and without hyperbole, here is a factual account of where we have come from and where we are now.
REHOBOTH BEACH – October 23, 2013
Beach restoration work to reverse damage from Superstorm Sandy is moving to Rehoboth Beach this week.
WXDE-FM radio reports that about one block will be built up each day from Virginia Avenue south.
After the replenishment project reaches Stockley Street, it will proceed north from Virginia Avenue to about Oak Avenue.
This portion of the ongoing project is expected to last about two-and-a-half weeks, with 1,000-foot sections of beach typically blocked off.
Dredging work is expected to continue around the clock.

Volunteers needed! DNREC is sponsoring a dune grass planting to assist our battered beaches throughout the state. 3/23/13 at 9AMThe Delaware Chapter wants volunteers to help at the Indian River Inlet, North Side. Specifically, we will be planting in Savages Ditch, about 1/2 mile north of Indian River Inlet. Park at the Savages Ditch Bayside Parking area, and plant on the dunes on the oceanfront. FOR THOSE OF YOU WITH KIDS – THIS WILL REQUIRE WALKING ACROSS ROUTE ONE. This time of year that’s probably not a big deal. See picture below.
Register with DNREC here but choose Delaware Seashore State Park as your desired planting location http://www.dnrec.delaware.gov/swc/Shoreline/Pages/BeachGrassPlanting.aspx
Check the Chapter’s Facebook Page for an event here.
If anyone has a surf tag, you can drive on the beach right there at Savages Ditch.
Here is a primer on the plant we will be planting. Instructions included http://plants.usda.gov/plantguide/pdf/pg_ambr.pdf
