APPROPRIATION - PROVIDING FOR A PUMPING SYSTEM AT SILVER LAKE, REHOBOTH

AN ACT APPROPRIATING MONEYS TO THE STATE HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT FOR THE PURPOSE OF INSTALLING A PUMPING SYSTEM AT SILVER LAKE AT REHOBOTH TO MAINTAIN THE SALINE WATER CONTENT AT A SUFFICIENT AMOUNT SO THAT ITS VALUE AS A GAME AND WILD FOWL REFUGE WILL BE PRESERVED.

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Delaware:

Section 1. The State Highway Department of the State of Delaware is directed to purchase and install a pumping system to pump salt water from the Lewes and Rehoboth Canal into Silver Lake located at Rehoboth, Delaware, for the purpose of maintaining the saline water content of said lake at a sufficient amount so as to help to eliminate the growth of certain weeds and fungi which now prevent this lake from continuing as a proper game and wild fowl refuge.

Section 2. The sum of Thirteen Thousand Dollars ($13,000.00) is appropriated for the purposes stated and the State Treasurer is directed to pay the amount appropriated upon proper vouchers drawn by the State Highway Department.

Section 3. The State Highway Department shall without delay proceed to carry into effect the purposes of this Act and the sum hereby appropriated shall remain available for said purposes until the purposes of this Act have been fully carried out.

Section 4. This bill shall be known as a Supplementary Appropriation Act and the moneys hereby appropriated shall be paid out of the General Fund of the State Treasury from sums not otherwise appropriated.
