USA: Bethany Beach Replenishment Nears End
As of January 6, about 450,000 cubic yards of sand have been pumped on the Bethany beach.
“The completion of this replenishment project is scheduled for January 20,” said Maria Sadler, environmental scientist with Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control.
Depending on the weather and equipment repair needs, the contractor completes approximately 1 block every three to five days.
The State will follow the replenishment portion of the project with dune reconstruction and ramp construction, using the existing sand. An extra foot of sand was placed on the beach for this purpose.
