    The applicant, the American Littoral Society, proposes to conduct beach restoration and inter-tidal or shallow sub-tidal reef construction at multiple locations along the Delaware Bay shoreline in Cumberland and Cape May Counties, New Jersey. Projects to be authorized by the proposed permit would focus on two specific activities: beach restoration (i.e., beach slope and berm improvements) and inter-tidal or shallow sub-tidal reef construction (i.e., low profile breakwater structures). Beach restoration would be through targeted sand placement at several locations along the Delaware Bay shore, and, where appropriate, the placement of inter-tidal or shallow sub-tidal reefs that would protect the beaches, allow for continued enhancement of the intertidal environment through sand accretion and would serve as living shoreline habitat for marine and estuarine species. Note that this application is for a 10-year permit to conduct the described activities. More details are available in the "Public Notice & Plan Details" attachment. Public comments are due by November 30, 2018.
