SB 209 will correct ownership rights without impacting future sand replenishment projects

SB 209 clarifies that any new beach created by a beach nourishment project will be treated as if the sand was placed by natural accretion, and the riparian owner’s rights will remain intact.

but such ownership shall be subject to the public’s same right of use and maintenance upon the newly created land as previously existed on the adjacent land above the mean low-water mark.
