Cooper not surprised by action
By Ryan Mavity | Feb 27, 2015
REHOBOTH BEACH — The Delaware chapter of the Surfrider Foundation has appealed Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control Secretary David Small’s decision to approve Rehoboth Beach’s ocean outfall project.
For absolutely no reason, this news report on the Chapter’s Outfall Pipe Appeal comes to you…from a helicopter.
The Chapter is appealing DNREC’s January 5th decision that accepted the findings of the Environmental Impact Statement, EIS, for the proposed Rehoboth Beach Outfall pipe.
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.
