Beach Replenishment Update – Dredge Repairs

All ,

Do not fear , the dredge has only temporarily gone away for about a week , the dredge snapped a major steel swing cable and damaged the cable mechanism ,  the cable and mechanism is necessary for it to swing left to right as it make its repetitive lateral cuts through the Borrow Zone sand.

It has been moved to a boatyard in Jersey City for repairs, which are anticipated to be completed to allow it to return in about a week.

Weather pending of course.  – Bob Mainberger, Borough Engineer
