New Sand Arrives at Tiana Beach

New York State will provide approximately $1 million in NY Works funding to restore a sand dune at Tiana Beach in Suffolk County to prevent a breach of the protective barrier island, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo said.

The dune replacement, which will be completed in time for the summer tourism season, is necessary to sustain the region’s natural setting. Much of the area had been left vulnerable following coastal erosion from major nor’easter storms in 2013 and 2014.

Governor Cuomo said: “This project is a critical part of the effort to protect Tiana Beach and the surrounding communities from the dangers of storms like Hurricane Sandy, and I am proud that our administration is moving it forward.”

More than 50,000 cubic yards of sand will be used to repair approximately 3,000 linear feet of the dune. Once reconstructed, the dune will absorb energy from the waves and wind, helping to prevent or minimize damage.

Tiana Beach is located within the Hampton Bays on the West Hampton Barrier Island. Barrier islands prevent the mainland from facing the full force of a storm.
