POINT PLEASANT BEACH, N.J. (AP) -- A major Jersey shore beach owner is suing the state, the federal government and the borough of Point Pleasant Beach over a project to establish protective sand dunes along the state's shoreline.
State prosecutors have scored a legal victory over a southern New Jersey couple that was seeking roughly $800,000 for an easement on their property that was needed to build a sand dune and beachfront protection project.
A new report compiled by the U.S. Geological Survey finds beach erosion levels in New Jersey following Superstorm Sandy were worse than the damage caused by several Gulf Coast hurricanes in recent years.
Hundreds of beachfront homeowners are still refusing to grant permission for a system of dunes to be built along their property, a project the governor says will help protect New Jersey's coastline during future storms.
A year after Superstorm Sandy wreaked havoc along the New Jersey shore, three coastal towns have given themselves authority to seize beachfront land from owners who are blocking the federal government from building a protective dune system.
