CAPE MAY WORKING WITH STATE D.E.P. TO FILL COVE TIDAL POOL

The City of Cape May has partially filled a tidal pool formed at the Cove beach, that nearly claimed a little boy’s life last month. The state Department of Environmental Protection issued a permit for a one-time transfer of sand to fill in the pool, but it was not enough to completely eliminate the hazard. Last week the city moved sand into the tidal pool but the fill-in reduced the size of the pool by less than half. City officials are hoping that two beach replenishment projects planned for the fall will totally eliminate the Cove’s tidal pool after work is completed.
