Public Hearing on Quogue Dredging

A multi-million dollar proposal by the Village of Quogue to dredge sand from the ocean bottom and place it along the entire 2.7-mile length of the village’s oceanfront will be up for public hearing scheduled for next week, East End Beacon reports.

The state Department of Environmental Conservation has arranged the public hearing, which will be held in the Quogue Village Hall on August 10, at 6 p.m.

The village has asked the DEC to approve its plans to use either hydraulic cutterhead or hopper dredge equipment to excavate a 100-acre area of ocean bottom several thousand feet off the Quogue oceanfront, placing 1.1 million cubic yards of sand along the village’s oceanfront.

The project is slated to cost nearly $15 million, to be paid for through increased property taxes for village residents.

According to the DEC permit, the excavation will lower the height of the ocean bed by about seven feet, and the fill will be placed along three distinct sections of oceanfront, known as “reaches.”
