An extensive Biological Monitoring Program was developed to assess the potential impact construction may have on the Sandy Hook to Barnegat regions aquatic habitat -- before, during, and after construction. The program created a final report detailing its findings.
Final Report for The Army Corps of Engineers New York District's Biological Monitoring Program for the Atlantic Coast of New Jersey, Sea Bright to Manasquan Inlet, Beach Erosion Project.
The report describes results of during-construction (1997) and first- and second-year post-construction (1998, 1999, & 2000) studies as well as comparisons with the pre-construction
results (1994-1996). All report files are in .pdf format and can be read with Adobe Acrobat.
