Rehoboth Beach Area Beach Restoration From Sandy

Posted by Bill Mann on Wednesday, August 21st, 2013 at 9:01am.

beach restoration benefits Rehoboth Beach propertyIn late October of 2012, Hurricane Sandy ravaged the majority of the beaches along the northeast coast of the United States. Coastal Delaware was directly hit by Sandy causing major damage and flooding to structures, but also causing immense erosion on its beaches. The once beautiful wide stretches of sand were replaced with narrow strips of eroded embankments.

In a recent news story by Delaware Online they detail how 19.3 million dollars from the Superstorm Sandy recovery package is being used to restore the beaches. Sand will be dredged from the ocean floor back on to the beaches and should be completed by early 2014. Beaches included in this restoration are South Bethany, Bethany Beach, Dewey Beach and Rehoboth Beach, as well as the beach that stretches north from the Indian River Inlet.

This is good news for homeowners in the Rehoboth area as well as those interested in buying a Rehoboth Beach property. Buyers who were reluctant to buy a beachfront home in the Rehoboth area due to the uncertainty of the beach can now have confidence it will be back to its greatness within a year. The once great resort beach will again allow visitors and homeowners to walk for miles on wide sandy stretches and bask in the sun.  The Rehoboth community’s small beachfront neighborhoods hold many gems of properties which offer walking access to The Boardwalk and Downtown Rehoboth.
