When does investing in a jetty make sense? We love the new sand, but it’s a band-aid solution at best. From DredgingToday.com: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Philadelphia District pumped 667,000 cubic yards of sand onto the beach at Brigantine, NJ.
This project was completed last month. The $15.7 million program was awarded in September for both Brigantine and Ocean City, said Army Corps of Engineers spokesman Steve Rochette. The federal government is picking up 65 percent of the cost, with the state Department of Environmental Protection funding 26.75 percent and the municipalities 8.25 percent.
