AUTHORITY: This project is authorized by Section 14 of the Flood Control Act of 1946, as amended. Section 14 of the Flood Control Act of 1946, as amended, Streambank and Shoreline Erosion Protection of Public Works and Non-Profit Public Services, is designed to implement projects to protect facilities that are used to provide public services and are open to all on equal terms. These facilities must be in imminent threat of damage or failure by natural erosion processes on stream banks and shorelines, and are essential and important enough to merit Federal participation in their protection. Eligible facilities include known historic properties whose significance has been demonstrated by being listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
STATUS: A Federal Interest Determination was completed by the District and approved by North Atlantic Division in FY14. Funds were received from the Disaster Relief Appropriations Act of 2013, Public Law 113-2, enacted to assist in the recovery in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. The NJDEP Bureau of Coastal Engineering has agreed to serve as the non-Federal sponsor. The NJDEP SHPO office was able to secure a grant from NPS for $500,000 to use towards the non-Federal share.
- The objectives of the Feasibility Phase of the project are to:
- Prepare the Feasibility Report for the project
- Prepare an Environmental Assessment and NEPA documentation for the project
- Prepare a Project Management Plan (PMP) for the Design and Implementation Phase
- Develop other supporting plans (e.g. Real Estate Plan) as needed for completion of the Feasibility Report
