BEACH REPLENISHMENT UNDERWAY IN OCEAN CITY

A beach replenishment project is underway in the north end of the Ocean City beaches. The project was scheduled before Hurricane Sandy struck the shore and caused more significant beach erosion. Sand is being pumped 24 hours a day to renew the beaches from Seaspray Road to 14th street. Residents at the southern end of the island are unhappy that their beaches are not being replenished after the storm. Ocean City Mayor Jay Gillian told NBC-40 that the city was looking at putting dunes back into the area of 50th to 59th streets. He said that environmentalist opposition and fish and wildlife laws were some of the reasons why a beach fill was not yet happening in the south end of the city.
