Rehoboth opposes linking outfall to stormwater

By Ryan Mavity and Chris Flood | Oct 28, 2014

 

While Rehoboth Beach officials await a decision on funding for a $35 million ocean outfall project, a proposal by Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control to tie improvements to existing stormwater outfalls to the loan was rejected due to uncertainty over costs and construction details.

REHOBOTH BEACH — A deal that would have tied in Rehoboth Beach’s wastewater outfall project to improvements to the city’s stormwater outfalls never got off the ground, Rehoboth Mayor Sam Cooper said.

Editorial on Outfall Pipe

The Cape Gazette Editorial Board is calling for a decision on the proposed Rehoboth Ocean Outfall pipe and we could not agree more. We hope that decision involves something besides ocean outfall, besides bay outfall and the state steps up and handles any difference in cost.

Great Letter on Outfall Pipe in Cape Gazette

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.  Coastal NJ has spent hundreds of millions of dollars creating more water infrastructure because of their ocean outfall pipes.  Anyway, great letter http://capegazette.villagesoup.com/p/ocean-outfall-equals-rehoboth-downfall/1160074#1162492
