DEP Commissioner to Speak at ‘State of the Shore’

On Thursday, May 21, at 11 a.m., Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Bob Martin will kick off the unofficial start of the summer season with an update on ocean water quality and post-Sandy beach construction projects during the annual State of the Shore event, hosted by the New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium.

The event will take place at McLoone’s Asbury Grill on the boardwalk in Asbury Park.

Commissioner Martin will be joined by Dr. Jon Miller, New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium coastal process specialist and Dr. Stewart Farrell of Stockton University’s Coastal Research Center.

The State of the Shore is an annual report examining erosion and other impacts to the Jersey Shore.

Particular attention this year will be given to the amount of erosion incurred by Superstorm Sandy, and how the beaches in the state’s four coastal counties are recovering from a loss of 14.24 million cubic yards of sand, which is the equivalent of 7.12 million light duty pick-up truck payloads.
