Sandy Hook, NJ - Sand Slurry Pump Skids

To counteract severe beach erosion at the Sandy Hook National Recreation area in Sandy Hook, NJ, the National Park Service constructed a three mile long permanent slurry pipeline to transport sand from the north end of the beach, and recycle it back to the south end of the beach. As part of a large Design/Build project, Summit Metal Fabricators was contracted to source and fabricate five sand slurry pump skids, one jet water booster pump skid, and a sand slurry tank for the beach errosion control system being built and installed at Sandy Hook.
