As part of a coastal marsh enhancement
project, Delmarva Power was responsible for ongoing monitoring and maintenance
of the James Farm Ecological Preserve in Ocean View, Del. The project's main
goal was to enhance the site's habitat value by turning historically mosquito
ditched tidal marshland into a more natural coastal wetland habitat. Monitoring
of the site continued through 2013. Moving forward, the Delaware Center for the
Inland Bays will assume long-term stewardship of the marsh as part of its
management responsibilities at the James Farm Preserve.
