NJ DOT Replenishment Concludes in Manasquan

On December 11th, 2016, the NJ DOT Mansquan River Dredging and Beach Replenishment project concluded the phase of the project that pumped beach quality sand onto Manasquan Beach.

According to sources, the dredging started to encounter more stones than the project team wanted to place on the beach. Material will continue to be dredged and will be pumped to the Gull Island CDF.

Due to weather conditions and my end of the year work schedule I wasn't able to fly a mapping mission until December 23rd, 2016. I also had to wait about 45 minutes past mean low low water for a sun angle that was appropriate for collection. This means that the newest flight has a water line a little bit higher than the absolute lowest level. Still, you can see the significant increase in beach width afforded by this project since September in the swipe map below that compares the September 13th flight to the December 23rd flight.
