Over the last 2 years, our beaches took a beating from Irene, Sandy, and several Nor’easters. ¬†Thankfully, Avalon and Stone Harbor were already in line for a beach replenishment project. ¬† The June/July timing for Stone Harbor was challenging, however, the municipalities had no control over the schedule.

Now that the projects are complete, I thought it would be helpful to remember the “before” so we can better appreciate the work involved to replace/repair our beaches. Dune grass planting to stabilize the dunes will take place in the fall.
