The applicant, elaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, has requested a Department of the Army permit to conduct beach nourishment along the South Bowers Beach shoreline in Frederica, Kent County, Delaware. This beach has previously been nourished utilizing dredged material from the Murderkill River Federal Navigation Channel. The applicant proposes to discharge approximately 28,000 cubic yards of sand from an upland borrow site onto the shoreline to replenish approximately 1,700 linear feet of beach and dune. The purpose of the project is to provide protection for waterfront homes during coastal storms and to maintain the recreational beach for the community.
