Gov. Markell Expresses Appreciation for SuperStorm Sandy Aid to Repair Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge

Feb 08, 2013 -- 5:55am

Governor Jack Markell is expressing his appreciation for the inclusion of the Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge breaches on a list of projects to be supported by federal funding for Superstorm Sandy repair.

The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service announced this week that it will use part of $68.5 million allocated by Congress to build a low dune that was destroyed by Sandy as the first phase of a large restoration project. The Service has not yet detailed how much money will be used for restoring Prime Hook in Milton.

Gov. Markell says he will continue to work with Senators Carper and Coons and Congressman Carney to secure funds for Prime Hook and for other Sandy-repair projects in Delaware.
