DUNE UPDATE

Some Property Owners have expressed concern about whether what has happened in Margate will happen in Longport when the beachfill is constructed. The conditions in Margate that contributed to the ponding do not exist in Longport. The Beach Blocks for the portion of Margate where the ponding occurred drain from Atlantic Avenue to the Beach. In Longport, no Beach Blocks drain to the Beach, so there is no possible rainfall effect. More over, there is no need to excavate the Beach behind the dune to accommodate rainfall runoff. For these reasons, no ponding as occurred in Margate will occur in Longport. If you have any specific questions, please feel free to contact our Engineer at engineer@longport-nj.us.
