Beach replenishment is one way in which we have chosen to respond to increasing dramatic weather events.

 

In the last 15 years, there has been $100,000,000 spent maintaining Delaware's Atlantic Ocean beaches and protecting coastal infrastructure. From Rehoboth Beach to Fenwick Island, major dunes have periodically been constructed and native vegetation planted.

 

While this is an expensive undertaking, to date it remains less expensive than relocating all development inland.
