On February 4th, Dr. Robert S. Young, Director of the Program for the Study of Developed Shorelines, released the following report (click here), which provides a multi-faceted perspective on the proposed beach nourishment project for the Village of Quogue.
The perspective provided by Dr. Young is based on an evaluation of a report entitled “Shoreline Erosion Assessment and Plan for Beach Restoration Village of Quogue, New York,” which was prepared in July 2011 and has served as the basis for required permit applications to carry out the beachfill project.
In addition, the document contains comments and observations stemming from Dr. Young’s long experience of evaluating coastal engineering projects and assisting community partners with local project assessment.
This evaluation was prepared at the request of the Concerned Citizens of Quogue. We hope that this document can provide additional points for discussion as our community evaluates options for the future management and protection of the Village’s beaches.
