Welsey Lake Restoration Project
Reconstruction of the retaining wall will be done from Beach Avenue west to Founders Park.Work will proceed with the installation of reinforcing steel, and pouring of a new concrete footing and retaining wall. The desilting area is approximately 2500 feet in length, removing approximately 5000 cubic yards of material.
Funds for the project were secured by Neptune Twp Engineer, Leanne Hoffmann from a federal grant: National Resource Conservation Service (NRCS).
Plans for restoration of Wesley Lake began in 2012 and in addition to dredging, rebuilding of the wall, and storm water management, plans call for an improved streetscape around the Lake .
(Wesley Lake, originally called Long Pond, has a 750-acre watershed in Asbury Park and Neptune).
