Here's what's up...
Within the next two months, the City of Rehoboth Beach, Delaware will ask voters whether it may borrow $52.5 million to build an ocean outfall pipe to pump treated water from the Rehoboth Beach Sewage Treatment Plant into the ocean.

A land-based solution makes more sense.

Here's three big reasons why:

(1) Economics: Ocean outfall is not the cheapest option. Land-based applications are less expensive to implement.

(2) Time: A land-based solution can be implemented quicker than ocean outfall, reducing the time that current effluent is sent into Rehoboth Bay.

(3) Wasteful: Sending 3 million gallons of treated freshwater into the ocean every day is a tremendous waste of a precious natural resource that can be used beneficially, for example, in agriculture applications.
