Picture of the Day: Army Corps Continues Rockaway Beach Replenishment

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York District, in conjunction with the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, continue work on a $36.5 million coastline restoration project at Rockaway Beach by placing nearly 3.5 million cubic yards of sand, restoring the beach that suffered extensive erosion from Sandy in October 2012.

Sand fill is creating a new, wide berm resulting in a fortified beach better able to absorb impact from high tides and waves during major storms, reducing the risk of flooding and inundation to homes and communities. In addition, NYC Parks and Recreation and the NYC Economic Development Corporation are adding resiliency to the project by providing funds for the Corps of Engineers to increase the height of the berm.
