Storm Upsets Beach Replenishment Efforts

Posted: Updated:

REHOBOTH BEACH, Del.- Dune Replenishment in Sussex County is on hold until this week's storm passes.

Jim Trail said the weather has ruined his vacation. He wants to see the dune replenishment around the Indian River Inlet continue once the skies clear.

"I think it is necessary if we want our children and those in the future to come here and enjoy it," he said. "We need to replenish it because the beauty of it is all gonna be diminished."

WBOC's Chief Meteorologist Dan Satterfield said some of the Army Corps of Engineers progress could get pushed back.

"We're only one big storm away from losing a good chunk of what we put out there, so really it's just delaying action," he said.

There could have been more erosion if winds were stronger.

"It could be worse, we could have had a really strong coastal storm and lost a good chunk of what was out there and we probably won't do that," he said.

Madison Mercer said if the next storm is coming, then the replenishment isn't needed.

"If it's gonna happen, if they think it's gonna happen shortly then I don't think it would do anything," she said.
