VIDEO: Little Mill Creek Flood Risk Management

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Philadelphia District, is working with its partners to deepen and widen the channel of the Little Mill Creek in New Castle County, DE.

USACE is excavating and removing approximately 30,000 cubic yards of material as part of the project which is designed to reduce flooding.

Work involves widening of only the right bank (facing downstream) from approximately 381 feet downstream of the Maryland Avenue Bridge (DE State Route 4) downstream for a length of approximately 500 feet.

The excavated material is being transported and disposed of at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Wilmington Harbor South Disposal Areas. This area is currently used for the disposal of dredged material from the existing Christina River and Delaware River navigation channels.
