Beach Rebuilding: FIMP Work Underway in Montauk as Storms Cause More Erosion

Three coastal storms in a week caused widespread flooding across the East End and prompted officials to explore potential emergency repairs to recent Montauk beach work just as another project got underway there.

As floodwaters filled the streets of waterfront neighborhoods in the Hamptons and on the North Fork amid the series of storms, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (ACE) announced on January 13 that the agency plans to expedite a request from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation to perform emergency repairs to four recent beach projects on the South Shore of Suffolk County, including one in Montauk.
