ABOUT 20,000 CUBIC YARDS OF SAND are being added to Stone Harbor’s beaches each day. At the most recent beach fill progress meeting last week, officials said about 160,000 cubic yards of sand still needed to be pumped. On or about March 15th (barring weather or mechanical delays) the dredge Texas will move from Hereford Inlet to Townsend’s Inlet and begin pumping sand in Avalon. Some pipes and equipment are already mobilized in Avalon, including a large pipe crossing the jetty onto the beach at 8th Street.
A large dredge pipe crosses Avalon’s 8th Street jetty, awaiting the start of Avalon’s portion of the beach replenishment project.
YES, THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT! Purchase your 2017 Avalon, Stone Harbor, or Sea Isle City beach tags via the Viply app. Download the app from the App Store or Google Play, then purchase your tags. Tags may be picked up in town by opening the app and scanning a code. In Avalon, pick up tags at the beach tag office at 30th Street & Dune Drive after April 1st. In Stone Harbor, pick up tags at Borough Hall. In Sea Isle City, pick up tags at the Sea Isle Welcome Center or Borough Hall.
SPRING FORWARD on your clocks this weekend, as we enter Daylight Savings Time again. Gaining an extra minute of sunshine each day is great, but gaining an extra hour at the end of the day is a real treat! (The semi-annual changing of the clocks is also a great time to check your smoke detector batteries, too!)
