Town of Slaughter Beach Selected for DNREC Partnership

DNREC’s Delaware Coastal Programs (DCP) announced yesterday that the Town of Slaughter Beach has been selected for DCP’s first annual Resilient Community Partnership.

This partnership leverages up to $75,000 in federal funding provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to help Delaware communities improve their planning and preparation capabilities for responding to coastal hazards.

“Delaware towns are extremely vulnerable to coastal storms and climate change,” said Sarah Cooksey, DCP administrator.

“Advance planning can help communities minimize their risks and rebound more quickly from hazardous events. We applaud Slaughter Beach for wanting to take the necessary steps to become more resilient.”

Through this partnership, DNREC, DCP and Slaughter Beach will carry out a comprehensive vulnerability assessment of risks from coastal storms, sea level rise and extreme tides.

This assessment will produce data and visualization tools that characterize the Town’s risk so that the Partnership can identify adaptation and mitigation measures that will enhance the Town’s resiliency to hazardous events.
