All Set for NJ Beach Nourishment

Tomorrow, April 17, Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Commissioner Bob Martin will join U.S. Army Corps of Engineers officials, U.S. legislators and local officials in launching major coastal construction projects for Cape May and Monmouth counties.

Commissioner Martin will first attend a 10 a.m. news conference at the beach on 42nd Street in southern Ocean City with Congressman Frank LoBiondo for the launch of a project to build beaches and dunes in southern Ocean City, the Strathmere section of Upper Township, and Sea Isle City in Cape May County.

Then he will attend a 12:30 p.m. news conference at Allenhurst Beach Club in Allenhurst with Congressman Frank Pallone for the launch of a project building beaches and making improvements to other coastal protection structures in the area of Loch Arbour, Allenhurst and Deal in Monmouth County.

The projects are being funded through $1.2 billion appropriated by Congress to rebuild and strengthen New Jersey’s coastline to better protect shore communities following Superstorm Sandy in October 2012.

Construction of a statewide coastal protection system is a key component of the Administration’s post-Sandy storm recovery and resiliency strategy.
