Manasquan Inlet to Barnegat Inlet Coastal Storm Risk Management Project
The Dredge RN Weeks, owned and operated by Weeks Marine, conducts dredging and beachfill operations as part of the Manasquan Inlet to Barnegat Inlet Coastal Storm Risk Management project. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Philadelphia District is managing the project in partnership with New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and contractor Weeks Marine. 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.
