Faithful Steward Crossing Is Closed

Delaware State Parks closed Faithful Steward crossing for oil debris clean up. It will be open again by Monday possibly Sunday afternoon.

There is still oiled debris on the beaches and in the double wrack line from the hurricane surge and the last storm surge. So we have two areas on the beach that have a line of oiled debris. Close to the dunes edge and along the water’s edge in the normal wrack line.
Since it is so cold the tar balls are a little harder and less sticky. They aren’t collecting in the tread of your shoes. I’m not too worried about telling people not to go arefot this weekend.
Until you open a tar ball up they aren’t sticky in the cold. The wind, sand, and surf action will break it down and bury it all eventually. Sadly that is how that works.
