One of my coworkers pointed out that there are barges and booms out in front of the beach cam in Monmouth Beach. Our first reaction was that they were doing something with beach replenishment but now it looks like they are deploying absorbent booms.
Does anyone know what's going on there?

Piping plovers are even messing up beach replenishment.  see below.



 



Dear Monmouth Beach Residents, Due to piping plover issues, the ACOE Emergency Beach Replenishment Project dredge will now start in Monmouth Beach instead of Sea Bright. The work will begin today with the staging of equipment at the north end of the Pavilion parking lot. Pumping is expected to begin on Thursday just north of the Long Branch Beach border and proceed north to the Sea Bright border. It is anticipated that this work for the Monmouth Beach segment will take about 30 days to complete. There will be a 1,000 foot buffer section, which will move north each day as the work progresses. We recognize that the timing of this project may present some inconveniences for our beachgoers and we apologize in advance. Obviously, the borough is anxious to accommodate the timing and needs of this project in order to have our beach replenished for the protection of our town. Please attend the information session on Tuesday, July 23 if you have any questions. Sincerely, Mayor Sue Howard, Commissioner Jim Cunniff, & Commissioner Bill McBride Sea Bright/Monmouth Beach - ACOE Emergency Beach Replenishment Project Public Information Session Tuesday, July 23, 6pm at Monmouth Beach School Sea Bright/Monmouth Beach - ACOE Emergency Beach Replenishment Project - Public Information Session: Tuesday, July 23 at 6pm at Monmouth Beach School. Hurricane Sandy severely impacted large portions of the northeastern United States. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ previously constructed beach erosion control and storm risk reduction project along the Atlantic Coast of New Jersey from Sea Bright to Manasquan was impacted with the storm causing the loss of roughly 5 million cubic yards of sand during the storm. The renourishment in Sea Bright and Monmouth Beach is being done at full federal expense and as a result of two statutory authorities: 1) the Flood Control and Coastal Emergencies Act, PL 84-99 which authorizes the Corps of Engineers to repair projects after a large event like Hurricane Sandy, and 2) the Disaster Relief Appropriations Act of 2013 (the Sandy Relief Bill, or PL 113-2) that authorizes the Corps of Engineers to restore previously projects impacted by Hurricane Sandy to their original design profile The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is partnering with the New Jersey State Department of Environmental Protection to repair and restore the Sea Bright and Monmouth Beach section of the Sea Bright to Manasquan beach erosion control and storm risk reduction project.. Thank you for using the The Borough of Monmouth Beach GovOnline System! If you have any questions, please contact GovOnline System help center.

Again? They just did this in December. There's raw sewage on Monmouth Beach I guess they're just covering instead of attempting to clean... What a shame.

Sure, we are PO'ed, but every taxpayer west of Pennsylvania should be up in arms against this. Waste, waste. waste. Wouldn't it be more cost effective to move those few hundred residential properties to the west side of the river?

Cool, they just keep making the state Park of Sandy Hook larger!

Monmouth beach was just pumped in December.

This Bull ***** sand pumping is only making the ACOE money.

Pump Monmouth beach, watch the sand go to sandy hook then dredge sandy hook and put it back on Monmouth.

Rinse and repeat.

Someone from ACOE has some great government connections. Keep the swindling up!

Tax payers love being bent over!

On second thought, how can I get a job making 40$ hour just holding a shovel?

Can't beat em? Join em!

What i don't understand is the notching of the jetties
The sand wants to flow north. You want the sand to stay in place, extend the jetties then pump in the sand
Frikken common sense

I don't think common sense has anything to do with this. 



 



Just pumping our money into politician's friends pockets.

If you want to see total habitat destruction, wait till they get to the Elberon section of Long Branch. I was told they were going to pump sand 200-250 feet. Don't know if that's true, but if it is there goes every jetty and some prime fishing grounds! Mother nature will take care of it in a year or two, but everything will be screwed up during that time. So sad. :(
