Sand Storm: NJ Sues Town That Fixed Eroded Beach Despite Ban

Home / Uncategorized / Sand Storm: NJ Sues Town That Fixed Eroded Beach Despite Ban

A sand storm at the Jersey shore is escalating. New Jersey is suing a coastal town that repaired beach erosion from an October storm in defiance of a state order not to do so. And the town, North Wildwood remains defiant: It says it will place material to build a prohibited bulkhead on the sand next week and promises it will build the wall if a storm predicted for this weekend causes the temporarily repaired dune to collapse. The state says there is no imminent danger to communities near the beach and warns that the work North Wildwood wants to do could actually make future erosion worse.
