From the Office of the Cape Mat County Engineer

Notice of Paving and Detour Third Avenue (Cr 619) from 93rd to 80th Street

Borough of Stone Harbor

Temporary surface paving

 The County of Cape May, in conjunction with the Borough of Stone Harbor, will be performing temporary paving restoration along Third Avenue (CR 619) in the Borough of Stone Harbor on May 6th and 7th between 93rd and 80th Streets.  The work includes the milling and resurfacing of the travel lanes that were damaged as a result of the recent utility replacement project performed by the Borough of Stone Harbor.  This paving is a temporary resurfacing effort to restore the roadway for the summer traffic.  The County will be undertaking a more comprehensive resurfacing improvement project beginning in September 2024.

During the paving operation, thru traffic will be detoured around Third Avenue onto Second Avenue between 93rd and 80th Street.  Local traffic will be maintained, and residents will always have access to their homes. The roadway will be reopened to thru traffic overnight on Monday however motorists are urged to proceed with care as the roadway may be uneven at the centerline and will not be striped.  Upon completion of the paving on Tuesday, Third Avenue will be permanently opened to thru traffic.

Stone Harbor Water Supply Safe from “Forever Chemicals” as EPA Sets National Limits

April 11, 2024

On Wednesday, April 10, 2024, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency established national limits for six types of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS, in drinking water.  The substances, known by the initials PFAS, are nicknamed “forever chemicals” because they barely degrade, are very heat resistant, and are nearly impossible to destroy, so they can linger for very long periods in air, water and soil.

The Borough of Stone Harbor has been testing for these chemicals well in advance of the new regulation and to date, no PFAS has been detected in Stone Harbor’s water supply.  The Borough will continue to monitor for these chemicals on a routine basis, however, we are confident that our water supply is safe and free of these forever chemicals.  The EPA estimates that between only 6% and 10% of the drinking water systems will be affected by this regulation.

The class of chemicals includes over 14,000 man-made chemicals that have been in use for 70+ years.  Exposure to PFAS have been associated with a higher risk of certain cancers, heart disease, high cholesterol, thyroid disease, low birth weight and reproductive issues, including decreased fertility. According to a US Department of Health and Human Service study, almost every American has some level of PFAS in their blood already.
