Notice to Oceanfront Residents RE: Beach Replenishment

Attached please find a notice to oceanfront residents regarding pending beach replenishment work.

Army Corps Beach Replenishment Update – Survey Markers

Please be advised that the Contractor for the USACE Beachfill Project has installed survey markers within the dune system from 1071 Ocean Avenue to the Borough’s northern municipal limit.  The Borough kindly asks that you please refrain from relocating/tampering with these markers since the Contractor will be utilizing them for the upcoming beachfill activities.

Beach Update

There are several items I would like to cover in this post. The ACOE has agreed to work an additional 100 feet beyond the access point at 1071 which will allow us to use it this summer. Unless the weather doesn’t cooperate, we should have this first option done within the next 10 days, or so. Then they will leave and come back this summer. A quick explanation about the ADA access on Downer. The most recent code for this requires 12 feet of linear feet for every 1 foot of upward/ downward direction and, in addition, every 30 feet there must be a 10 feet rest area throughout the entire expanse of the access. Thus, the very large structure. We will be planting dune grass and other vegetation over the next several months and this will serve, in time, to make the access much more attractive than it is today.Lastly, there were munitions found offshore last week which included rifle grenades from World. War 1. This is not at all unusual for this sort of a job. A contractor who specializes in munitions was brought in to dispose of them. To date, 1,407,433 cubic yards of sand have been placed on the beach. All access points are open. Please call with any questions or thoughts. Councilman White 732-606-6988

Weekly Beach Replenishment Update – 12/13

Unfortunately, there has been no progress this last week. As mentioned in the last post, a cable snapped on the starboard side of
the barge. This part has been ordered and arrived yesterday. If all goes well, the barge should return by Saturday or Sunday and even with the high winds we are experiencing today the swells are an acceptable 5.5 feet and going down over the next few days. This is good news.The two crossovers at Downer and Princeton are not completed and both have exceeded the allowable 14 days. Weeks Marine, the contractor, is awaiting revised plans for Princeton Ave. from the Army Corps of Engineers. These should be forthcoming shortly. Please feel free to call with any comments or questions. Councilman White – 732-606-6988
