Just a reminder that South Jersey gas continues to upgrade service lines that run from the gas mains in the street to household meters within the Borough of Stone Harbor.
In order to complete the service line replacement the contractor has to temporarily shut off gas service to the property. They will need to access your property to reconnect/relight your appliances and perform safety checks.
There are a few homeowners that have not contacted the contractor to schedule an appointment to reconnect/relight the gas service.
If your property is located on Sunset and Corinthian (near Pleasure Bay and Carnival Bay) you must contact Utility Line Services, on behalf of South Jersey Gas, at (609)363-9600 ext 402 or e-mail email@example.com and reference “Stone Harbor Project” to schedule an appointment to restore your service.
If you property is located within the following locations:
100 & 300 Block of 89th Street
200 Block of 84th Street
87th & Third Avenue
200 Block of 107th Street
100 & 300 Block of 94th Street
200 Block of 81st Street
100 & 200 Block of 85th Street
200 & 300 Block of 87th Street
100 Block of 92nd Street
and you discover that you are without gas service you must contact Lantier Construction, on behalf of South Jersey Gas, at (732)608-1600 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and reference “Stone Harbor Project” to schedule an appointment to restore your service.
If you have already established an appointment to have your gas service reconnected there is no need to contact the contractor at this time.

The Stone Harbor Elementary School will be hosting the annual Arbor Day Celebration on Friday, April 27th @ 1:30pm. This event will be taking place out on the playground at Stone Harbor School, 275 93rd Street.
Grades K-4 will be sharing songs, stories, poems, and Arbor Day facts in honor of the celebration.
The Stone Harbor Garden Club has generously donated the Arbor Day Tree.
Each year the school plants a tree to honor someone the school community admires and appreciates. This year’s tree is being dedicated to Mr. David Hoy, a longtime member of the Stone Harbor Elementary School family.
The Borough of Stone Harbor, in partnership with The Lomax Consulting Group, will be distributing tree seedlings as Arbor Day Gifts to Stone Harbor Elementary Students.
For the homeowner, Arbor Day is an excellent opportunity to take stock of the trees on your property and plan for the future. Inspect your trees noting any broken branches or evidence of disease or insect infestation. Think about how planting new trees might improve the look of your property or provide wind or heat protection. The Borough strongly encourages the planting of native species adapted to the unique growing conditions on a coastal barrier island.
The Stone Harbor Shade Tree Committee has prepared a pamphlet which provides information on the importance of maintaining and replacing trees indigenous to our area. The Borough has earned approval of the Community Forestry Management Plan, which sets goals for managing and maintaining the Borough’s tree resources.
As a Tree City USA community for 20 years, the Borough is a recognized leader in responsible stewardship of its trees. Arbor Day is a perfect opportunity to recognize these accomplishments and remind residents and visitors alike of the importance of trees. By gifting trees to the elementary students the Borough aims to inspire future stewardship by the next generation.
On or about April 9, 2018, the Great Channel Bridge will be undergoing maintenance and repair work. The bridge will be passable but will be reduced to one lane of alternating traffic with work scheduled to continue through the months of April and May.
Please have patience and drive with care while traveling in the area.

The Coalition has started a new Internet program called “Tidal Flooding Talk (TFT)”. Hosted by Dan Skeldon and Palma Accardi, TFT is a weekly “Live Feed” that takes place on Facebook every Tuesday night at 7pm and focuses on flood mitigation. Sponsored by and held at The Irish Pub in Atlantic City, TFT has a guest each week and the show runs about 20-25 minutes or so. Both the “Live Feed” (Video) and a Podcast (Audio) are available (Archived) on the Coalition’s Facebook page, Website, YouTube and Instagram. Since February 20, 2018 guests have included Jim Eberwine, Meteorologist, Cathy Van Duyne, Van Duyne Builders, Dr. Amy Williams, Stevens Tech and Chris Huch, Tetra Tech.
Below you will find some of the links:
Very ambitious plans are in the works for TFT in 2018 which we believe is the only weekly show of its kind on the Internet that focuses on flood mitigation, the challenges we face and the solutions that are possible if we work together in a regional manner on this important issue.
