22 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, November 27 - December 3, 1998 Sussex takes first step to pull state park sewerage from inlet By Michaellrort .............. -'i 'te discharge is near a busy fish- Sussex County has taken the ing and swimming area, but it is first steps to removing the sewer  considered to be of minimal envi- discharge at Indian River Inlet - an often controversial discharge from Delaware Seashore State Park. Money was allocated, a total of $500,000, in this year's state bond bill to remove the state sewer dis- charge and connect the sewage plant, which services the state park campground property, to the county's South Coastal treatment plant. Sussex County Council ap- proved approximately $49,000 for the design phase, the first step to removing the sewer discharge, when it met on Tuesday, Nov. 17. Ultimately, the discharge will be stopped and the sewer plant will be connected to the county plant, which discharges to a point approximately one mile offshore. While that may not be ideal, it has been less controversial than the discharge at Indian River Inlet. : ronmental impact. Far smaller than most inland bays discharges, this particular discharge is only on the powerful outgoing tide. Former Department of Natural Resources and Envi- ronmental Control (DNREC) Di- rector of Water Resources Gerard Esposito said the discharge proba- bly was less damaging than other inland bays discharges, like the sewer outfalls of Miilsboro and Rehoboth Beach, be- cause the out- going tide probably car- ried the pollu- tion out tO the open sea. But offi- cials ranging COLE from Coun- cilman George Cole to Sen. GeorgeBunting, D-Bethany Beach, and Rep. John Schroeder, D-Lewes, have called for it to end because they said the state had an obligation to set a good example. - ' "Good, good," Cole said when county council approved the spending. Schroeder has been pushing hard to remove such point-source discharges from the inland bays and he was also delighted to hear the news. "I think that everyone rec- ognizes that this is a state- run discharge and the state has an obliga- tion to lead by example and cease SCHROEDER any addition- al discharge into the inland bays. I am very glad we are moving for- ward...but it is only a first step," according to Schroeder.
