The 36 Most Ridiculous Things Found On New Jersey Beaches (PHOTOS)

I once was part of a crew shovel testing the east shore of Staten Island, NY as part of a evaluation of to be repaired or constructe­d flood control designs by the US Army Corps of Engineers not too long after 9/11. All shovel test were to be to 1 meter deep in the beach sand, much of it along the relatively new "world's fourth longest boardwalk" and I must concur we need to keep beaches cleaner, though I thought much of it, except where attempts at land-filli­ng had produced hidden small refuse garbage dumps, to be relatively clean. New building is perilous close in elevation to flooding. I've also worked on a study of 100 miles of the Passaic River drainage in New Jersey in the 1980s and still wondering when someone is going to do something there to control flooding. I hope we get through this predicted active current hurricane season and onto some serious redesign as Bridgewate­r, NJ will have. Read the Article at HuffingtonPost
