Project Update 3-7-09

With both dredges working at Fire Island Pines, the beach had been filled to Coast Guard Walk by the weekend. More than 65,000 cubic yards of “excellent quality” sand has been placed at the Pines, according to Dr. Quin Robertson of Coastal Planning and Engineering. With double pumping, the Pines should be completed ahead of schedule and both dredges will then move to Davis Park, where the submerged pipeline is almost ready.
