All About DNREC – Delaware Dept of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection
Delaware’s beaches are a major draw for summertime vacation and recreational opportunities. The coastal economy generates approximately $7 billion and employs roughly 59,000 people annually. As natural ocean processes keep these habitats in constant flux, these areas have to be maintained through beach nourishment projects, erosion control and dune maintenance, and storm repair.
Not only are Delaware’s beaches important to the local tourism economy, but they provide essential habitat for wildlife and protection from flooding and storms. Because of the various roles that beaches play for people and wildlife, DNREC makes it a priority to take measures to sustainably manage them so that they can be enjoyed for generations to come.
