Officials Announce Completion of Sills Gully Beach

Congressman Lee Zeldin, Brookhaven Town Highway Superintendent Daniel P. Losquadro and Brookhaven Town Councilwoman Jane Bonner have announced the completion of repairs to protect, restore and strengthen Sills Gully Beach in Shoreham, after it was severely damaged during Super Storm Sandy in 2012.

Congressman Zeldin, member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, said: “Once Brookhaven Town received the necessary federal funding to make repairs at Sills Gully Beach and Gully Landing Drainage Facility, the town was able to complete this important project.”

“This revitalization project will help protect, restore and strengthen Sills Gully Beach in Shoreham, and the overall quality of water in our local area, and I am proud to join with Superintendent Losquadro and Councilwoman Bonner to announce the completion of this project.”

In order to reduce risk of future storm events, the Brookhaven Highway Department completely removed the ineffective gabion basket walls, replacing them with 160 feet of steel bulkhead with stone-toe protection to prevent scouring.

The bulkhead, which now protects areas of the bluff that have experienced significant levels of erosion in the past, has a longer life span than the gabion walls and will better protect from future disasters.
