Manasquan Inlet to Barnegat Inlet Coastal Storm Risk Management Project
A technician conducts a survey as part of the Manasquan Inlet to Barnegat Inlet Coastal Storm Risk Management project, a joint effort between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. Weeks Marine is the prime contractor. The project, once fully completed, will cover approximately 14 miles of coastline along the Barnegat Peninsula and will reduce the risk of storm damages for the communities of Point Pleasant Beach, Bay Head, Mantoloking, Brick Township, Toms River Township, Lavallette, Seaside Heights, Seaside Park, and Berkeley Township. More than 11 million cubic yards of sand will be dredged from approved borrow areas and pumped through a series of pipes onto the beaches of the municipalities.
