Supervisor Saladino Calls for Tobay Beach Sand Replenishment

Joseph S. Saladino, the Supervisor of the Town of Oyster Bay in Nassau County, Long Island, asked the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers last week to replenish an estimated one million cubic yards of sand washed away from Tobay Beach in a recent storm.

Saladino, in a letter to officials at the USACE headquarters in Washington, D.C., said that the sudden loss of sand in the May 12 storm could affect beachgoers and cause flooding on Ocean Parkway as well as in nearby homes.

In the letter, he called the problem an “urgent situation” and requested USACE’s “immediate attention to this matter.”

“A short-term and long-term action plan must be implemented, along with the proper funding to achieve the goals of hardening the shoreline with additional sand, protecting the mainland and continuing to provide the public access our residents expect and deserve,” Saladino said in the letter to Lt. Gen. Todd T. Semonite, the Chief of Engineers and Commanding General of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

“The Town of Oyster Bay suffered enough during Superstorm Sandy and we must resolve this matter now, as the 2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season has just begun.”
