Excellent information Mr. Lentze -- Thank you!

The "Bayshore Hurricane Flood Protection Project" was designed and implemented by the U.S.Army Corps of Engineers" after "Hurricane Donna" devastated the Bayshore area on September 12, 1960 and was put into full operation in the early 70's. The USACE "Original Rules and Procedures of Operation" had the "Flood Gate" closing "During Extreme Tidal Surges" and "Severe Weather Conditions" of 2'ft above the MHW. Upon completion, its operation and maintenance was handed over to three local towns and the N.J.Department of Environmental Protection, termed as the "Joint Flood Control'. After several years, one of the controlling towns had roads that USACE recommended to be raised 6"in.(actually below MHW) and was annually deficient on maintenance money, lowered the "Operational and Closing Procedure Rule" to close at approx. 4.7"in. above MHW. Subsequently full operation was taken over by the NJDEP who now operates and maintains the "Flood Gate" as well as the Navigation channel giving boaters access to the Raritan Bay.

The "Flood Gate" is "Always Open" it closes only during extreme tides or Lunar Phases and surges of approx. 4.7"in. above MHW. Area Tide Chart can be found at www.lentzemarina.com

During "Hurricane Sandy" this Hurricane Flood Protection Gate operated "FLAWLESSLY", it protected the local towns and "Boating Facilities" from devastation. The area Marinas are "One Of, If Not, The Only Marinas" having ZERO Vessel Damage.

Thanks to the NJDEP's men who braved the storm operating the Hurricane Flood Gate 24hrs for the duration of the storm!
