• Sandy’s Message

    by  • October 23, 2013 • News

    Sandy sent a strong message:  We must build a more resilient coastline that is able to mitigate anticipated future Sandy-like storms. We learned that loss of property was minimized in areas that had wide sandy beaches and the addition of a dune system.   Beach replenishment projects led by the Army Corps of Engineers have restored eroded New Jersey beaches for the last two decades.  Since Sandy, the Corps of Engineers working with local municipalities, has been replenishing beaches all along the coast, a process that will continue through the fall and winter months.  We are monitoring current Corps projects and, at the same time, focusing on collaborative partnerships that will address regional solutions and opportunities for building a more resilient coastline.
