Coastal geologist Dr. Robert Young submitted the following letter on behalf of our chapter. He evaluated the Army Corps of Engineers’ proposal to protect the motels that were built atop the ocean front primary dune many years ago. The proposal recommends constructing a new dune that will be reinforced with huge sand bags and located well seaward of the existing primary dune in what is now the ocean intertidal zone and our publicly-owned beach. Some of you may remember when a much smaller version of this – with private funding – was attempted in Bridgehampton many years ago. It unraveled in a time span of months.
