Lewes-Rehoboth Canal
Background  
The Lewes-Rehoboth Canal is located in eastern Sussex County. The canal, which is about 10 miles long, connects the Delaware and Rehoboth Bays.

Rehoboth Bay makes up one of three of Delaware's Inland Bays. The Inland Bays consist of three interconnected bodies of water - Rehoboth Bay, Indian River Bay, and Little Assawoman Bay - all located in southeastern Sussex County that are further divided into subwatersheds. The subwatersheds of the Rehoboth Bay consists of the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal watershed and the Rehoboth Bay watershed.

Most surface waters in this watershed are tidal in nature. The principal land uses in the basin include agriculture in upland areas, residential (including the town of Lewes) and commercial development near the water and at either end of the canal, and wetlands at water's edge.
