We agree with almost everything this fellow says especially that the perception of pollution may be more important than reality in this case. But he’s not exactly right about places like NJ and Maryland; they have ocean outfall too.

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.

Dredging work is expected to continue around the clock.
