USCG rebuild documents for Pt. Pleasant station available for viewing

TOMS RIVER –  The U. S. Coast Guard submitted an environmental assessment for the proposal to rebuild the shore facilities at Station Manasquan in Pt. Pleasant Beach.

The report is available for public viewing at Ocean County Library’s Point Pleasant Beach branch, 710 McLean Ave., during its regular business hours until August 16, 2014. It is available at the circulation desk.

The branch’s telephone number is 732-892-4575.

According to the assessment the station plays a vital role in ensuring public safety, providing port and waterway security, and providing environmental protection along the state’s coastline.

The report also said the damage caused by Superstorm Sandy was temporarily patched but the existing buildings are not designed, nor can they be retrofitted, to resist anticipated future storm and flood conditions.

The purpose of the project is to improve the station’s resilience to future storms and reduce downtime for mission-critical facilities after storm events by constructing a new, hurricane resistant multi-mission building, according to the assessment. It also calls for improvements to the waterfront along the Point Pleasant Harbor.
