Rehoboth ocean outfall study appealed

Molly Murray, The News Journal 11:28 a.m. EST February 24, 2015

When Rehoboth Beach officials looked for land for an alternative disposal site for their municipal sewerage, the coastal real estate market was booming.

They contacted landowner, after landowner and found no one tilling to sell.

So the city proceeded with a proposal to build an ocean outfall, a plan that was supported as the best option in an environmental impact statement recently approved by state environmental officials.

The first rule of wildlife conservation is you cannot save species if you do not save habitat. For those of us who are conservative, we should regard that ethos and preserve our natural world for future generations, along with the health and well-being of all species that share this planet. If not, then that makes you a radical, someone disregarding the intrinsic value of biodiversity, which is directly and importantly the foundation of humanity on many fundamental levels.
