Inventory and Evaluation of Information on Delaware Bay, vol. 2, November 1972 (NCEI Accession 7310520)

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

This is the second section of a three part study describing the history, land use, and legal mechanisms which operate in the tideland region of the lower Delaware Bay. It traces the development of important legal precedents which involve the possession and use of property along the Bay, and examines existing and proposed ownership and land use patterns. A more complete recitation of laws applicable to the bay region is deferred to Part III, where it is combined with an analysis of zoning and its compatibility with proposed land use. The land area under scrutiny in both the second and third parts is basically the same as defined in the first part, i.e., it considers the tidelands, from Lewes north to the border of Kent and New Castle Counties in Delaware, and Cape May and Cumberland Counties in New Jersey. Unlike the historical analysis it excludes the larger communities which are located inland on streams flowing into the Bay. Towns such as Millville, Bridgeton, Dover, and Milton, while important to the history of the tidelands, since these inland communities have ceased to be as integral a part of tideland affairs.
