The applicant, MURTECH, proposes to place an articulating barge off the coast of Delaware which would convert salt water to potable water, and install a pipeline from shore to the barge in order to bring potable water from the barge onshore. The barge would be located approximately 0.75 nautical miles east of the Indian River Inlet, near Rehoboth Beach, Sussex County, Delaware.   The applicant's stated purpose is to test the viability of the barge converting salt water into potable water. The USACE Philadelphia District Regulatory Branch previously issued a permit for the work described in the "Public Notice & Plan Details" attachment on January 8, 2014. Public comments are due by Feb. 28, 2019. More details are available in the "Public Notice & Plan Details" attachment.
