REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. (AP) — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will be pumping sand along the north end of Delaware's Rehoboth Beach.

The state's Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control said in a statement Monday that the $7 million beach nourishment project will begin this week.

The project is a partnership between the state, the city of Rehoboth Beach and the Army Corps of Engineers. Pumping operations will be done by contractor Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company.

The project is expected to finish up in 20 days and will result in some beach closures. A similar project is expected to last about 25 days in Dewey Beach.
