Upper Township 2009 Veterans Day Storm

Upper Township did not see as much storm damage as other coastal communities from this storm event.   The recent beach nourishment project provided a substantial defense against the storm limiting damage and erosion of the dune system.  Large volumes of sand were lost from the beach, berm, and sand bar. This volume of sand was moved off shore and to the south.
