Permit(s) Applied for:

Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification

Project is Located:

Brooklyn, Kings County


Project Description:

The applicant proposes to construct a series of beach protection and erosion control structures along a 3,000-foot-long stretch of Plumb Beach, Brooklyn, and in offshore waters. The project location is bounded by Belt Parkway to the north, Sheepshead bay channel to the west, Gerritsen Inlet to the east, and Rockaway Inlet to the south. The purpose of the project is to protect the beach and Belt Parkway and associated utilities and infrastructure along a severely eroded section of Plumb Beach from further damage from coastal storm surges and flooding. Project elements include approximately 2,000 feet of beach berms (maximum elevation approximately 9 feet), approximately 1,000 feet of dune restoration (maximum elevation approximately 12 feet), an approximately 200-foot-long eastern and 150-foot-long western terminal groin, and an approximately 200-foot-long underwater stone offshore breakwater reef to reduce storm wave impact and beach sand losses. Approximately 100,000 cubic yards of dredged sand will be used to create the berms and restored beach dunes.
