Second Phase of Wreck Pond Restoration Kicks Off

Continuing efforts to develop innovative resiliency strategies to protect communities from storms and flooding, the Christie Administration yesterday marked the beginning of the second phase of work to restore Wreck Pond.

Governor Chris Christie announced the start of the $7.4 million project in Spring Lake on July 23. Since then, dredging of the 73-acre lake has been completed by the Monmouth County Department of Public Works and Engineering.

For the second phase, construction will now begin on an outfall system that will improve tidal ocean flows into the lake while providing protection to surrounding neighborhoods from flooding.

Work will also begin on other significant ecological enhancements, including creation of ecosystems using dredged materials and native plants.

Wreck Pond is one in a string of unique coastal lakes in Monmouth County being restored through partnerships coordinated by the Christie Administration.

The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) in partnership with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resource and Conservation Service has already completed a variety of infrastructure repair and stabilization projects at Lake Fletcher, Lake Como, Lake Takanassee, Lake Wesley, Sylvan Lake and Deal Lake.
