ABOUT THIS PROJECT

This project involved beach renourishment work and hurricane dune construction along a one-mile-long stretch of Brant Beach in New Jersey. The cutter suction dredge excavated the sand from an offshore borrow area and pumped it through 36,000 feet of pipeline onto the beachfront. The renourishment heightened the existing dune from 8 feet to 22 feet, and extended the width to 30 feet. The berm was also widened to 260 feet with a seaward slope of 180 feet.
