Henlopen Avenue Water Main Project
The City of Rehoboth Beach replaced 3,800 feet of the aging water main on Henlopen Avenue. The Water Department completed work on the south side of Henlopen Avenue connecting the new water main to the existing water line at properties in May 2018. The new pipes will not only increase water flow to customers along Henlopen Avenue, but they will also enhance fire-fighting capabilities and improve water supply reliability of the system. The previous 4-inch pipes made from old ductile iron, originally installed in the 1940s, will be replaced with 8-inch PVC pipes. PVC does not rust or corrode and is more cost-effective than other alternatives. “We are pleased to complete this important water system improvement project to ensure our water service remains reliable for our customers for decades to come,” said City Manager Sharon Lynn. “We are committed to making improvements that will serve our customers well during both normal operations and in the case of an emergency.”
