BPW Approves $311,356 for Shoreline Erosion Control in Kent County
On Wednesday, Aug. 31, the Board of Public Works approved a $311,355.57 loan to Kent County for construction of a 557-feet long stone revetment to stabilize a segment of the community shoreline along the Chesapeake Bay, at and adjacent to Florida, Maine and Alabama Avenues in Tolchester. The historical rate of erosion in this area is approximately two feet per year and this project will prevent 2,055 tons of sediment from entering the waters of the Bay annually.
