Construction crews were busy shoring up makeshift dunes in Normandy Beach during the day Tuesday, as a coastal storm sent strong waves onshore, whittling away at the berms built up in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.

The dune work was being done in Toms River’s portion of Normandy Beach. In the Brick portion of the neighborhood, a steel sea wall was keeping the ocean from breaching the island.

Badly battered Ortley Beach, which already had a makeshift berm constructed after the Jan. 23 nor’easter, seemed to be holding up to the tides with no signs of breaching.

    Stop dumping they are polluting it is documented on Facebook. They are dumping everything and sand Down. I don’t believe in the sand dumps already because funding for this is literally the definition of throwing money in the ocean. Won’t stop it will just be again and again.-and remember this is to hep a select group of homes the overwhelming majority of the towns barrier island belong to do not see the beach and have to pay every single time or are barred from the beaches. It’s impossible to go to the beach on a holiday weekend for under $100 for the family.I might as well go to six flags. Why do we live here by the water . Because we like it but we are never able to enjoy it.
