Little Egg Harbor Township

Welcome to Little Egg Harbor Township


As you may be aware, the Township of Little Egg Harbor recently completed two successful lagoon dredging projects for Osborn Island and Mystic Island East. Therefore, in an effort to continue moving in a positive direction, the Township has secured permits to dredge the remainder of waterfront lagoons/creeks throughout Little Egg Harbor. Subsequently, similar project plans have been proposed to dredge areas within Mystic Island West. The Township has scheduled a series of special virtual meetings (4 sessions total) to explain the details of the project for your neighborhood. Please see the links below for more information on the project and virtual meeting instructions (by session):
