Oh the irony! What is strange in reading the article is that Sea Girt officials tried to tell the Army Corps that this same thing happened in 1997. It seems like to Corps didn’t listen. http://www.app.com/story/news/local/2014/08/09/sea-girt-floods-beach-pipes-clogged/13826003/
And the bills add up for the little town of Sea Girt. it reminds me of another case where the Army Corps or contractor goofed and a small local town got stuck with the bill. See article from 2005 in Bradley Beach.
