BEACH REPLENISHMENT

Work began in Avalon on January 3 as the dredge “Charleston” was set up offshore to pump 1,000 cubic yards of sand per hour onto Avalon’s beaches.  The dredge will operate 17 hours per day, stopping only for mechanical or weather-related reasons.  After Avalon’s north-end beaches are replenished, the dredge will move to Fire Island, New York for a beach fill project there, then return to Stone Harbor to replenish its beaches.  The dredging contract calls for all work to be completed by May 23rd, in time for the summer season.  Dune grass replanting and rebuilding of dune fences are also included in the project.
