Broadkill Beach Homeowners Consider Beach Replenishment

Posted:

BROADKILL BEACH, Del.- Broadkill Beach is poised to see a major replenishment of sand to repair storm damage, but most of a select 38 property owners in the area must sign off on it.

The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation will send out easements to 38 beachfront property owners to allow the work to take place and give the public access to the beach.
    
If the project moves forward, residents would get a wide beach and a large dune along 15,000 feet of shoreline. Some 1.9 million cubic yards of sand is expected to be pumped in. And it wouldn't cost the state or residents anything.

"We will sign off obviously, because we need protection," says Karen Segerstrom of Broadkill. "But I think after the last couple of storms, everyone will sign."

DNRC representatives say they hope construction will begin in September.
