Beach Replenishment on Long Beach Island NJ


Beach Replenishment and the LBI Real Estate Market

Beach Replenishment involves heavy equipment pumping sand off carefully selected areas of the ocean floor and blowing that sand onto the beach in order to widen the beach and increase the protection of the sand dunes. The process is contracted out to company’s who bid on the contract and is performed in conjunction with the Army Core of Engineers. The picture above show a fully replenished beach in Harvey Cedars. A few of the advantages of beach replenishment are:
  • wider beaches
  • better dune protection from storms
  • government assistance should the beaches need extra replenishment
  • lower costs of flood insurance for some homeowners.
Beach replenishment does have critics who cite the extreme cost (some of which is funded by the town), the impact to the natural beaches and the overall change to the Long Beach Island area.Long Beach Township is actually the third town on Long Beach Island NJt o have the beaches replenished.
