Sandy Recovery Aid Granted For Prime Hook

Posted: Updated:

DELAWARE - On Monday, State Senate Republican Leader Gary Simpson (R-Milford) announced that Delaware will receive another $20 million to help restore Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge and rebuild the shoreline damaged by Superstorm Sandy.

The federal funds are in addition to the $20 million granted earlier this year to rebuild dunes also destroyed by Sandy. In  statement, Sen. Simpson said:

"It is just exciting news to know that now we have a little cushion. Not only can we fix the breaches, but we can start the restoration of the marsh. That really is all one system behind the houses at Slaughter Beach, Broadkill Beach, and Prime Hook Beach, so we think it will alleviate a lot of the flooding problems that have affected those communities for the last four or five years."
