Rehoboth seeks new course on Schoolvue

Rehoboth Beach officials are awaiting a recommendation from engineer Jason Loar on what do on how to proceed with a project to reroute sewer lines in the Schoolvue neighborhood. City Manager Greg Ferrese said sealed bids were opened Oct. 9 and the low bid was $794,000, higher than the $500,000 project city officials had anticipated.

The city received a 10-year, $450,000 loan from the Water Infra­structure Advisory Council to reroute 1,900 feet of sewer lines in Schoolvue. City officials have said the lines need to be rerouted because they run underneath houses and cannot be accessed if repairs are needed.
