Abstract: Maintenance dredging of Ambrose and Sandy Hook Navigation Channels provided acceptable sand for nourishment of the critical zone at Sandy Hook, Gateway National Recreation Area, to protect access to the intensely visited recreation area. Over two million cubic meters were emplaced. This prograded the shore line to a mid-1950's location, created valuable habitat, and, following equilibration, has proved to be relatively stable in surviving a ten-year recurrence interval storm intact.
