Listen to Podcast: It’s not over yet. In some ways..the Margate Beach & Dune fun has just begun. Will a new outfall beach drainage project affect the summer of 2018?
We talk to long time Margate resident & dune guru, Glenn Klotz. We dig into that deal with the devil, reluctantly signed on OCT 19 by the Margate Commissioners.

The NJ DEP & The Army Corp of Engineers will soon rip up the entire length of margate beaches, to install a full blown network of outfall drainage pipes.
The Army Corps will pay 100% of the cost…but Margate will take responsibility for maintenance & upkeep moving forward.
- As a deal sweetener, a deal with the devil….margate wont be forced to get regular renourishments….every few years….pumping sand on the heach.
- But with a dune cutting the heach in half….and erosion chewing up the front beach, margate will likely still need renourishment in the near future.
- Did Margate leadership do everything possible to defend the rights of local margatians?
- Does the Army corp get paid based on cubit ft of sand pumped? Not on the effectiveness of the project?
