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.
