Recent aerial photos show the results of a marsh restoration demo project completed in the summer of 2014. USACE partnered with New Jersey and non-profit organizations to beneficially use dredged material to restore degraded marsh and create habitat. A number of shorebird species are now using the site for habitat while the project helps build overall coastal resilience.
