  10. GREAT FOR SPOT BURNS NJ Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) May 2016 DEP UNVEILS INTERACTIVE PUBLIC ACCESS MAP DURING ANNUAL STATE OF THE SHORE EVENT Beaches are Ready and Water Quality is Excellent Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Bob Martin heralded the start of the Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial start of the summer season, by announcing a new, interactive public access map for visitors to locate more than 2,900 coastal, bay and river access points in four counties. Commissioner Martin unveiled the online map, which went live today, during the New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium's annual State of the Shore event in Asbury Park, while welcoming residents and visitors to come enjoy some of the best water quality and beaches in the nation. "New Jersey consistently ranks as a national leader in ocean water quality and monitoring, and we expect another fantastic beach season for tourists, who will find beaches cleaned and ready for the summer," Commissioner Martin said. "To help residents and visitors get the most out of their summer season, we are also pleased to make available this interactive map, which will provide useful information on beach, bay and river access points in Monmouth, Ocean, Atlantic and Cape May counties. This versatile tool will help longtime New Jersey residents and newer tourists locate the wide range of access points to our tidal waters for all forms of recreation." The interactive map, which can be found at www.nj.gov/dep/cmp/access/ , uses Geographic Information System technology to locate the 2,900 points and allows users to get a glimpse of a particular access point via aerial or street view. Additionally, every point features a pop-up window that provides a street address and amenities available at the location, including parking, handicap accessibility, restrooms, boardwalks and forms of recreation permitted. The information for each spot was compiled by DEP staff. Later this year, DEP will expand the maps to include all public access points in the northeast region of the state and the Delaware Bay and Delaware River. "We take great pride in the public access for families, boaters, the fishing community and everyone who enjoys the shore," Commissioner Martin added. "With this great coastal access and our partnerships built through the state's Cooperative Coastal Monitoring Program to ensure excellent water quality, we look forward to another great summer in New Jersey." The DEP spearheads the Cooperative Coastal Monitoring Program (CCMP), a joint state, federal and local partnership that routinely tests water quality at 215 ocean and bay beaches across the state. In 2015, monitored ocean beaches were open more than 99.9 percent of the time. Just two ocean beaches were closed all season as a result of exceeding the recreational bathing beach bacteria standard. The DEP, working in partnership with local and county health agencies, monitors water quality at recreational bathing beaches from mid-May to the week after Labor Day. Water quality sampling results so far have shown that New Jersey's beach water quality is outstanding. Coastal surveillance flights are also under way, taking place six days per week from mid-May to mid-September. These flights carefully watch for issues such as algae blooms or debris that might affect water quality. The DEP has worked with Rutgers University to develop an interactive website and map to show real-time status of monitored beaches at www.njbeaches.org The website allows the public to easily view and download water quality data, notifies the public of any alerts at beaches, and shows the daily flight path and the chlorophyll data collected during the flights. It also includes access to a variety of reports, information about recent research, and shore-related links.

  12. Barnegat Bay Action Update - Special Announcement CHRISTIE ADMINISTRATION FILES FIRST EMINENT DOMAIN ACTIONS AGAINST BEACHFRONT HOMEOWNERS IN NORTHERN OCEAN COUNTY NJ Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) February 2016 CHRISTIE ADMINISTRATION FILES FIRST EMINENT DOMAIN ACTIONS AGAINST BEACHFRONT HOMEOWNERS IN NORTHERN OCEAN COUNTY Seven Actions Filed Against Property Owners in Brick; Another 21 Filed Against Property Owners on Long Beach Island and Absecon Island The Christie Administration has filed its first eminent domain actions to attain easements from beachfront property owners in northern Ocean County required by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to construct a federally funded engineered beach and dune project that will protect one of the areas hardest hit by Superstorm Sandy from severe storms and flooding, Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Bob Martin and Acting Attorney General John. J. Hoffman announced today. The filings against seven property holders in Brick Township this week build upon the ongoing work by the State to secure easements necessary to construct vital coastal projects that will protect lives, homes, businesses and infrastructure from storm surges and flooding. The actions were filed in Ocean County Superior Court. There are currently 283 easements still outstanding on the northern Ocean County peninsula, held by 176 property owners. "It is disappointing that we need to go through such considerable legal efforts to obtain easements from holdouts who continue to delay our efforts to safeguard our coast, particularly in northern Ocean County, where Superstorm Sandy did the most damage," Commissioner Martin said. "We will continue to be aggressive in seeking condemnation of portions of remaining properties in northern Ocean County and elsewhere along the coast to avoid any further delays for these critical Army Corps beach projects that will protect lives and property." "We continue to appreciate the majority of beachfront property owners who have unselfishly volunteered their easements in service of the greater good - namely coastal protection efforts that benefit all New Jersey residents," said Acting Attorney General Hoffman. "As we were reminded by Superstorm Sandy, coastline protection efforts are vital to safeguarding our communities against certain natural disasters. For that reason, we remain committed to acquiring all of the needed easements as expeditiously as possible." From mid-October through this week, the state has filed a total of 28 eminent domain actions against beachfront property owners along the New Jersey coast. In addition to the seven filed against Brick property owners, another four complaints have been filed in Atlantic County Superior Court against private property owners in Margate and Longport, where an Absecon Island beach and dune project has been delayed. Another 17 complaints filed in Ocean County Superior Court against property owners on Long Beach Island, needed for the completion of an ongoing $128 million beach and dune construction project, have also been filed in the past month. It is in northern Ocean County, where Superstorm Sandy decimated coastal communities, where the most holdouts remain. A total of 124 easements, held by 71 property owners, are still needed in Bay Head and another 68 easements from 50 property owners are required in Point Pleasant Beach. A major beach and dune construction project that would protect all northern Ocean County municipalities from Point Pleasant Beach to Berkeley Township, while also complementing a 3-1/2-mile steel sheet revetment to protect Route 35 in Brick and Mantoloking, has been delayed as a result of these holdouts. The DEP is continuing to work with the U.S. Army Corps to phase the large project in smaller sections so work can begin sooner. "We are grateful for those who have unselfishly volunteered their easements in northern Ocean County," Commissioner Martin added. "These are the people who clearly remember the damage Sandy did and want the protection for themselves and their neighbors." Helping significantly to clear the way for the obtainment of easements was a landmark decision by the New Jersey Supreme Court in July 2013, which resulted from strong advocacy by the State regarding how to determine compensation for easements needed for an already-completed shore protection project in the borough of Harvey Cedars on Long Beach Island. The borough sought an easement from the Karan family to build a 22-foot-high protective dune on a portion of their lot. The municipality used its power of eminent domain to acquire the easement, but the parties could not agree on fair compensation. A trial jury placed the value of the Karans easement at $375,000, and the Appellate Division upheld that verdict. However, on July 8, 2013, the state Supreme Court overturned the jury award and ordered a new trial. In reversing the jury award, the Supreme Court held that homeowners who are subject to a property-taking on behalf of public projects "are not entitled to a windfall" that disregards the protective benefits of those projects to their own properties. The Karans subsequently settled, accepting $1 as compensation. USACE, DEP, and local communities have been partnering to construct a comprehensive coastal protection system for New Jersey, largely funded by the federal Sandy Relief Act, signed into law in 2013. Last year, USACE, in partnership with DEP, completed eight post-Sandy beach repair projects, returning roughly 45 miles of previously engineered and constructed beaches along the New Jersey coast to their original protective construction design at a cost of $345 million. USACE and DEP are currently undertaking a $128 million beach and dune construction project on Long Beach Island, which is slated for completion next spring. A $57.6 million beach and dune project in southern Ocean City, the Strathmere section of Upper Township and Sea Isle City in Cape May County was completed last month. A $38.2 million project to construct beaches and improve infrastructure in the area of Loch Arbour, Allenhurst and Deal in Monmouth County has also been completed.

  14. The problem with a hacksaw and wood (carpenter) saw is they clog up when cutting through bone, sinew, meat. I have two different size Wyoming bone saws and a big commercial bone saw from The Sausage Maker. The teeth are longer and more aggressive than a hack saw The "set" of the teeth is such that they don't clog up when cutting. Seems they self clean on the back stroke. Reasonably priced and easy to clean after use.
  15. I just figured it was some sort of "tracking cookie". It has appeared maybe once or twice a month during the past year while on this site. Hasn't caused any problems or infections as far I can tell. I'll pay more attention if it shows up again.
