Mantoloking planning geotubes to protect coast



MANTOLOKING, N.J. (AP) — The Jersey shore town of Mantoloking is planning to put sand-filled fabric tubes on its beach to protect its storm-ravaged coastline.

Mantoloking officials say the city needs signed easements from all oceanfront homeowners by April 12.

The tubes would form the basis of a new dune system. No price tag is yet available.

The ocean cut the town in half during Sandy in October, with a new channel flowing into Barnegat Bay.

Other Jersey shore towns including Ocean City and Atlantic City have used similar fabric tubes to protect their oceanfronts, with varying results.
