Stone Harbor Beach Replenishment

beachfill  After 2 years of discussion and planning, the Stone Harbor beach fill is ready to begin.   The dredge will travel from Sea Isle City to Hereford Inlet (North Wildwood).   The State will determine if the next phase will be Stone Harbor or North Wildwood (both are scheduled).  Borough officials are hoping to follow North Wildwood so that the beach season is not interrupted.

The staging area will be on 111th Street.  Dredge pipes will be extended as the beach fills works it’s way north to 98th Street.  Approximately 3 blocks will be closed at a time in the immediate work area.  It’s a 24/7 operation, pumping sand for a total of 9 days.

The $2.5 million project is cost shared with the State of New Jersey:  75% State, 25% Stone Harbor.  245,000 cubic yards of sand will be added.  The removal of the outfall pipes is a separate project- that work will begin late fall or early winter.

    Even if the State decides to start Stone Harbor before North Wildwood, we are at least 10 days away (according to the DEP officials at a Borough meeting on Tuesday). If North Wildwood is first, the Stone Harbor project won’t start until the end of September.
    The staging area will be111th Street, and that will be the first area filled (and closed). The project will continue north toward 98th Street for 9 days. The beaches on either side of the work area will remain open. Enjoy your vacation…just watch out for the big waves from “Bill” :)
