A SPRING 2018 LETTER FROM THE SDBF

We at SDBF are continuing our efforts to link our beach to the chain of communities on Long Island’s South Shore that receive beach nourishment.

IT WORKS: THE SAGAPONACK REPORT

The July 2017 beach survey shows favorable results for Sagaponack and Bridgehampton with significant volume gains in the dune and underwater zones. Using the FEMA reference depth of −19 ft NAVD (as of July 2017), the Sagaponack BECD retains ~120 percent and the Bridgehampton BECD retains ~118 percent of their original nourishment volumes.

The diagram below can be found on page 32, figure 3.1. It shows exactly what beach replenishment does.
