New waterway management fund from boat registration fee increases enables DNREC to take on additional responsibilities for dredging, channel marking, other waterway maintenance
DOVER – Delaware boat registration fee increases that went into effect Jan. 1 will account for all revenue going into a new waterway management fund that enables DNREC’s Division of Watershed Stewardship’s Shoreline & Waterway Management Section to take better care of the state’s coastal waterways. In the wake of lost federal funding, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers no longer dredges navigational channels while U.S. Coast Guard can no longer adequately mark federally-authorized waterways – with both responsibilities now taken on by DNREC.
