Congressman Lee Zeldin was joined by Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine, Brookhaven Deputy Town Supervisor and Councilman Dan Panico, stakeholders and local residents at Webby Beach in Center Moriches yesterday to announce the completion of the dredge of the Long Island Intracoastal Waterway.

During the event, Congressman Lee Zeldin said: “Coming on the heels of the completion of the Moriches Inlet emergency dredge, the conclusion of the dredge of the Long Island Intracoastal Waterway is continued good news for our local tourism and maritime industries, environment, public safety and way of life.”

“It’s thanks to the hard work of the Army Corps of Engineers, local elected officials, fishermen, boaters and residents that we’re revitalizing and restoring our local waterways, but our work isn’t done yet.

“There’s so much more we can and will continue to do to improve our local beaches and waterways and ensure our area is a vibrant tourism and maritime business hub and great place to live.”

Brookhaven Town Supervisor, Ed Romaine, added that “By restoring this beach, homeowners in neighborhood can now be more confident that the flooding they have been experiencing will not be an issue for a long time to come.”

Sand from the dredge was placed at Webby Beach to extend the length of the beach and combat erosion, as well as at Smith Point County Park and Great Gun Beach.
