Suffolk County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Village of Quogue Beach Nourishment Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the undertaking of a beach / dune nourishment project to add sand to the entire approximately 2.7 mile length of Atlantic Ocean beach within the limits of the Village of Quogue. The project will consist of the dredging with either hopper or hydraulic cutterhead equipment of an approximately 100 acre area of ocean bottom located about 3,000 feet off the Quogue beach to obtain about 1.1 million cubic yards of sand. The deposition beach will be filled to a design elevation of + 7 NGVD and is divided into three zones with varying fill area widths ranging from 50 feet to 127 feet. The widest fill area is designed to act in conjunction with the dominant east to west littoral drift as a "feeder" beach. The portion of the deposited sand added to existing dunes will be planted with beach grass and sand fencing will be installed. The project is located along the full ocean beach frontage, south of Dune Road in the Village of Quogue, New York.
