Rehoboth Beach Outfall construction project almost complete

The Ocean Outfall project is nearing completion.

Rehoboth Beach Mayor, Paul Kuhns, tells 47ABC the city met their deadline of June 1st for the ocean portion of the project, now they are onto the paving portion on land. 

Restoration and paving began last Thursday on Henlopen Avenue. 

The city began working on the north side of Henlopen Avenue and Grove Street, and they are now working their way towards Surf Avenue and the South Side. 

The project aims to take treated wastewater and deposit it 6,000 feet off shore. 

Mayor Paul Kuhns said, "Right now we're doing the undercover of stone and asphalt and we will be finishing the paving probably in the next 10 to 12 days weather permitting."

Mayor Kuhns says the project overall is 95 percent of the way there.
