Van Drew Urges Secretary Bernhardt to Fix Bureaucratic Error and Save Stone Harbor Millions for Flood and Coastal Storm Damage Reduction Project
Inexplicably, in 2016, under the previous administration, the Fish and Wildlife Service arbitrarily reversed its prior decision and revoked the exception that allowed the Stone Harbor to use sand from the borrow area at Hereford Inlet. This decision increased project costs by more than $6.5 million that were borne by taxpayers.
Rep. Van Drew is seeking to fix this Obama-era mistake made by Washington bureaucrats and reduce project costs by at least $6.5 million as Stone Harbor seeks to renourish its coastline once again.
“The goals of CBRA are worthy goals, but in the case of the Stone Harbor Project, CBRA is creating unnecessary red tape that will have the opposite effect of what CBRA intended,” said Van Drew. “I won’t rest until this mistake gets fixed and I will exhaust all possible solutions.”
If this problem does not get corrected as soon as possible, Stone Harbor will not be able to get its beach renourished and therefore remain vulnerable going into the winter storm season.

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 21 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.
