The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) is partnering with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Brigantine, NJ, to pump 755.000 cubic yards of sand from the Brigantine Inlet to repair beaches and dunes in the city that were damaged by a nor’easter in January 2016.

The project, which involves dredging sand from an offshore borrow site and pumping it along 1.8 miles of shoreline, began on January 19.

Brigantine Inlet is not a navigation channel but has accumulated large shoals that can be utilized as a “borrow” area to provide sand for beaches and dunes.

Cranford-based Weeks Marine is implementing this $10.6 million project for the Army Corps, which is providing $9.8 million in funding.

The project will repair beaches and dunes from north of 14th Street south to Roosevelt Avenue. The DEP and city are cost-sharing the balance.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Philadelphia District, has just released an aerial photo of their ongoing beachfill project at Brigantine.
