March Meeting

Thursday, May 17th, 2018
Speaker: Chris Pray, P.E.
Topic: Port Monmouth Tide Gate: Resolving Complex Subsurface Challenges to Improve Coastal Resiliency

Project Name: Hurricane and Storm Damage Reduction Project - Raritan Bay and Sandy Hook Bay - Port Monmouth, New Jersey

Currently under construction with funding set aside after superstorm Sandy, the Port Monmouth tide gate, once finished, will help prevent future flooding of the surrounding community. To construct this new infrastructure however, several subsurface challenges needed to be addressed. In this presentation we will discuss how the project team worked together to devise constructible solutions to address the presence of large amounts of unsuitable fill, maintenance of a fish passage during construction, dewatering the site, protection of an existing levee, and sourcing suitable riprap that met the strict USACE requirements.
