Recovery Work Begins

Restoring Access, Beginning the Remediation

The first order of business is to restore access to the Light to allow work teams and the United States Coast Guard to complete their missions.

With the help of New Jersey marine contractor Atlantic Subsea, the Romer Shoal team attempted to begin the difficult task of clearing out the Light’s boarding area and restacking jetty rock to provide wave protection. This was a challenging task given extreme site location and wave/weather conditions.
