Feedback Sought from Dirickson Creek Residents

Rehoboth Beach, DE:  The Delaware Center for the Inland Bays invites residents of the Dirickson Creek area to complete a short online survey regarding their recreational use of the creek, access to the creek, and observations and concerns about water quality. The feedback from this survey will be used to assist the Delaware Center for the Inland Bays (CIB), and the Dirickson Creek Team of the CIB ‘Your Creek’ initiative, in their work to improve water quality in Dirickson Creek.  To take the survey, go to

The Dirickson Creek watershed covers approximately 20 square miles along the Route 54 corridor from Fenwick Island to Selbyville, nearly to Route 113. The creek collects its waters primarily from agricultural ditches that drain the farmland to the west and from groundwater inputs.  Dirickson Creek flows into Little Assawoman Bay at the bay’s southern end just north of the Maryland/Delaware state line.

The Dirickson Creek Team is part of the ‘Your Creek’ initiative at the Delaware Center for the Inland Bays. Those interested in learning more about the Dirickson Creek Team should contact Education and Outreach Coordinator, Sally Boswell, at or 302-226-8105 x103.

The Center for the Inland Bays is a non-profit organization that works to preserve, protect, and restore Delaware’s Inland Bays, the water that flows into them, and the watershed around them.  With its many partners, the CIB conducts public outreach and education, develops and implements restoration projects, encourages scientific inquiry, and sponsors research.
