Residents: Beach Replenishment Brings Danger

The Delaware Surf Zone Injury study, compiled by Beebe Healthcare, University of Delaware and DNREC experts, began as an effort to predict surf injury conditions, and will not conclude whether or not beach replenishment efforts have caused an increase in surf-related injuries.

Replenishment projects at Delaware's beaches have protected coastal properties, but some residents say these projects also make the beaches more dangerous. A surf-related injury study is underway, but experts say it won't prove whether replenishment is responsible for any increase in surf-related injuries.

During a public workshop in Rehoboth Beach Nov. 1, Dewey Beach resident and coastal property owner Clinton Bunting said future projects should support recreational beach use and not focus only on protecting property.
