EXTREME DAMAGE ON THE NANTICOKE RIVER

 
 

After continuous pounding by barge and boat traffic, here is what can (and did) occur after the torrential rains on June 25, 2006.

If the damage continues, what will the Nanticoke River look like in 5, 10, 15 years? One life long resident on the river stated that he has seen more erosion in the past 5 years than in all of the previous 55 years!!

 

See, Barges and Tugs, More Damage, DNREC and No Wake Zones pages to see why this has occurred?? Does this look like normal erosion to you??
