Sandy Hook to Barnegat Inlet, NJ

Sandy Hook to Barnegat Inlet, NJ (Sea Bright to Manasquan)

The Sea Bright to Manasquan Project covers 21 miles of the New Jersey shoreline and is the largest beach nourishment project ever undertaken by the Corps of Engineers, and is the largest beachfill project, in terms of volume, in the world.

The highly populated communities along the New Jersey shoreline, from the Town of Sea Bright to the Manasquan Inlet in Monmouth County, continually experience serious beach erosion. In 1962, the Ash Wednesday Storm caused $56 million in damages (1992 price level).
