Beach Replenishment Begins

By Camille Sailer

SEA ISLE CITY – Sea Isle City’s Business Administrator George Savastano informed Sea Isle City Council, at its June 9 meeting, that dredging would be ongoing throughout the summer on beaches for sand replenishment.
The original schedule was for dredging to begin in May, but various factors, most notably coronavirus safety precautions, postponed operations.
“The dredging will move in phases along various Sea Isle beaches. The most up-to-date schedule of where operations will take place will be posted on the city’s website,” explained Savastano. It’s important to know that dredging will be ongoing, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so beachgoers should plan accordingly. No longer stretch than 1,000 feet at a time of the beach will be affected.
“Heavy equipment, including hopper dredge Liberty Island is arriving the week of June 14, and at that point, work will begin. On the beach, 30-inch pipes will be installed at various locations and contractors will cover them with sand to facilitate traversing and moving on the beach and to the water.”
City administration stressed at earlier council meetings, during public comment, that it does not control when dredging operations occur, and gave a heads-up that beach replenishment could occur during summer, as is now transpiring.
