New Jersey’s Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) Has recently fined Agate Construction Company $14,000 for illegally dumping debris along the shoreline in Deal New Jersey.
NJDEP says Agate violated the New Jersey’s Coastal Area Facilities Review Act, the Waterfront Development Act and two other DEP regulations regarding beach dumping.
The fine came about from the incident which took place at the Roosevelt Ave. beach (shoreline) on Friday, February 19th, 2016.
Agate construction, while working on the outfall at Poplar Brook, illegally dumped debris dredged from the outfall area and deposited it at the shoreline.
Back in February an ACOE representative said, “THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN AGAIN.”
