ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — A judge last week shut down a government sand-dune construction project in New Jersey that created huge ponds of bacteria-laden water and blocked off access to parts of the beach.
Superior Court Judge Julio Mendez said he was horrified by photos showing “lake-like” ponds of standing water on the beach in Margate for days following recent heavy rains.
