The USACE Philadelphia District, in partnership with NJDEP, is conducting a feasibility level investigation for coastal storm risk management problems within the New Jersey Back Bay (NJBB) area, defined as the network of interconnected tidal water bodies located landward of the New Jersey ocean coastline in Monmouth, Ocean, Atlantic, Burlington, and Cape May Counties. The NJBB study area includes approximately 950 square miles and nearly 3,400 miles of shoreline.
The objective of the NJBB CSRM Study is to investigate CSRM problems and solutions to reduce damages from coastal flooding that affects population, critical infrastructure, critical facilities, property, and ecosystems. Participation of the general public and other interested parties and stakeholders in identifying significant issues and alternatives is being solicited by means of this public notice.
A public meeting will be held on Thursday, December 01, 2016 between 6:00 PM and 8:00 PM at the Stockton University Campus Center located at 101 Vera King Farris Drive, Galloway, NJ 08205. The event will commence in the theater, which is on the main level of the Campus Center. Free parking is available directly in front of the Campus Center, Lots 2 and 3.
