Picture of the Day: Oakwood Beach Project

Bill Dixon, Manager of the NJDEP Bureau of Coastal Engineer discussed beachfill operations with NJDEP Chief of Staff Magdalena Padilla at Oakwood Beach, N.J. on December 2, 2014.

USACE and NJDEP have partnered to construct projects along the New Jersey shore designed to reduce damages from future storm events.

The project involves pumping approximately 350,000 cubic yards of sand from the Delaware onto the beach.

This program is funded through the Hurricane Sandy Relief Bill (PL 113-2).
