VIDEO: Manasquan Beach Replenishment Moves Ahead (USA)

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York District recently awarded a $25.3 million contract to Dutra Dredging Company of San Rafael, Calif. to place approximately 1.5 million cubic yards of sand to restore New Jersey beaches from Belmar to Manasquan as part of an emergency shore protection project which repairs and restores previously constructed beach erosion control and storm damage reduction projects throughout the region affected by Hurricane Sandy.

The contract is the second of four for restoration of the entire Sea Bright to Manasquan project area, with an estimated 8 million cubic yards of sand to be placed to restore the entire project area. The previously constructed beach erosion control and storm risk reduction project was constructed in the 1990s and completed in 2001 in partnership with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.

The roughly 1.5 million cubic yards of sand being placed on beaches from Belmar to Manasquan through this second contract will be dredged from a previously identified offshore borrow area. It will be placed on beaches in the communities of Belmar, Spring Lake, Sea Girt and Manasquan north of the Manasquan Inlet.
