Hampton Bays, NY - June 22, 2016 - Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone and Park Officials are pleased to announce that the  much needed beach nourishment project is set to begin today at Meschutt Beach County Park in Hampton Bays.  Thanks to quick action and approvals from New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the Army Corp. of Engineers, the project will be completed by Fourth of July Weekend.

“This project is the first of two phases which will protect the beach infrastructure and restore the beach from previous storm damage,” explained Bellone.  “The 5,000 cubic yards of sand will provide visitors with improved beach conditions for the season.”

While the beach nourishment project is underway, there will be closures to the beach, however the playground and the Beach Hut will remain open. 

The second phase of the project will commence in September with the addition of another 15,000 cubic yards.  This phase will take at least a couple of weeks to complete.
