CAPE MAY – Mayor Ed Mahaney announced last week that Cape May County would be repairing, upgrading, replacing or disconnecting outfall pipes along Beach Avenue in Cape May.
Mahaney said the county would be going out to bid on the project in August, and county engineer Dale Foster confirmed the work would begin in the fall and continue through the winter.
“It’s going to take the whole off-season,” Foster said.
Foster said the county owns seven outfall pipes, which carry storm water from the storm drainage system out to the ocean.
The county owns the outfall pipes at Wilmington, Brooklyn, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Trenton, Reading, and Madison avenues, which is all the pipes from Wilmington to Convention Hall, with the exception of Queen Street, where the pipe is owned by the city.
