Discarded trees to be used to build sand dunes
The Christmas tree you threw out after the holiday just may prevent someone from losing their home in the next big storm. The Department of Public Works normally collects discarded Christmas trees after the holiday season, brings them to the public works yard and then turns them into wood chips. But not this year, Township Administrator Jeffry Bertrand said. This year the all trees collected are going to Bradley Beach, where that town is using them to bolster its sand dunes – a practice that officials there have said helped to gird against the worst of Hurricane Sandy’s wrath. “It’s a really good reuse,’’ Bertrand said at Wednesday’s meeting of the Township Committee. “And, frankly, it saves us money because we don’t have to spend the time…

Christie Visit to Bradley Beach focuses on importance of dunes, employment grants
With the whir of front loaders and bulldozers pushing sand on the beachfront behind him, Gov.

Flyover on Thursday found no evidence of algae bloom, DEP says
Because of reports of greenish brown, dirty-looking water at the beaches around Asbury Park, Avon and Bradley Beach, the state Department of Environmental Protection is looking into the water quality off Shore Area beaches, according to its website. The Monmouth County Health Department has identified a variety of species of dinoflagellates -- planktonic plants -- in the waters at the those beaches. These microscopic plants are generally not toxic to humans but in very heavy concentrations may be toxic to fish and shellfish because they remove oxygen from the water, according to the DEP. Additional samples are being collected by the DEP's Bureau of Marine Water Monitoring and at the beaches by the Monmouth County Health Department, …
