Hempstead Coastal Protection Project on Schedule

Hempstead Town Supervisor Anthony J. Santino has announced that his township’s beaches will be fully open for this summer’s season.

I am delighted to announce that all Town of Hempstead beaches will be fully open to the public this summer as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will conclude coastal protection work on the town’s section of the barrier island before the start of the beach season,” said Santino.

What’s more, as a result of the collaborative efforts of town and federal officials, the project will be entirely funded by the federal government, having no direct impact on Hempstead Town taxpayers,” added Santino.

Santino noted that, in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Hempstead Town was the first municipality to authorize the U.S. Army Corps’ Long Beach Island Storm Reduction Act in March of 2013.

Beginning in the fall of 2016, an Army Corps contractor began construction on the section of the barrier island within the township. According to him, the workers have already completed three new stone groins, extending from Town Park Point Lookout to the western end of Malibu Beach.

The project will also include the restoration of beachfront. In September, the Corps will return to complete the last jetty near Civic Beach. In total, the completed project will include four new groins and the reconstruction of three existing groins along Hempstead Town beaches.
