Seagrass Heads South Along Delmarva Coastline

Jun 27, 2012

Sea Grass is making its way further south this year along the Delaware coast.

Tony Crivella owns Beachcleaners based in Rehoboth Beach.

He says that he has been out cleaning up the grass because of a freak moon tide from around three weeks ago.

He told the Wilmington News Journal that much of it probably floated around the Delaware Bays with the tides taking it south from the Indian River into Ocean City.

Crivella said he spent one day removing between 90 to 100 cubic yards of seagrass in Fenwick Island and two days removing it from South Bethany.

He also told the paper that in Dewey Beach he recently removed 60 cubic yards from the beach.

However, Crivella noted that some private beaches still have quite a bit of seagrass that owners appear to be hoping will be taken out by the tides.
