Four Important Dates To Fight The Rehoboth Wastewater Outfall Project

Myself and many others have been fighting this project.  It will be detrimental to fishing and further endanger our sturgeon.  You need to go to these meetings, speak up, and write letters.  We can still stop this from happening … Rich King

First, thanks to those of you who commented on the Army Corps construction permit for the ocean outfall pipe. That permit is not yet granted but at the same time, a public notice and hearing process is happening for the other six permits this pipe will need. Please make a note of these 4 dates below and attend to help us stop the proposed ocean outfall pipe in Rehoboth Beach! There is a date to get more info, a date to learn more and ask questions, a full-on public hearing where you get your five minutes to speak, and a final date to submit your written comments to DNREC about these six permits.On Oct 15th – the Rehoboth’s permit applications and supporting documents, and a fact sheet and a draft NPDES permit all will be available on DNREC’s website at http://www.dnrec.delaware.gov/Admin/Pages/Rehoboth-Wastewater-Projects-Info.aspx
