Bellport Golf Shoreline Permits/Restoration

Project Location: Bellport, NY
Client: Inc. Village of Bellport

The Village owned Bellport Golf Course fronts on Patchogue Bay and the Great South Bay along the southern shore of Long Island.  The course, dating back to the late 1900’s, was historically subjected to repeated storm damage.  The golf club’s shoreline and bluff were extensively damaged by erosion from two Nor’easter storms in 2007 and 2010 and superstorm Sandy in 2012. NPV and Nelson + Pope, our engineering affiliate, were contracted by the Village to prepare a FEMA Grant Application to secure funding, permit applications from State and Federal agencies, and engineering and design documents for the restoration and stabilization for the shoreline and bluffs.  Improvements included bulkheading, stone revetment, bluff reconstruction and revegetation, revegetated wetlands, biodegradable matting and temporary stream crossing.  NPV prepared wetland permit applications to the NYS Dept. of Environmental Conservation, Army Corps of Engineers and Department of State.  N+P prepared plans, specifications and the construction contract for the public bidding of the project.  N+P also assisted the Village with the bidding process, construction contract administration, site visitations to document the contractor’s conformance to the plans and specifications and work progress, and project closeout.
