However, armoring may have delete­ rious side effects, increasing the erosion rates on adjacent beaches as was discussed previously. Beach nourishment and dune enhancement are effective, softer measures, but are only temporary and must be repeated. Stricter building codes are obviously beneficial in stipulating the elevation of structures and mechanical systems for new construction as well as retrofits.

15). It remained open in 2013, noticeably improving water quality in the lagoon due to increased water circulation (Foderaro, 2013). Engineers normally close new inlets quickly, since they counteract beach nourishment measures, transporting sand from the ocean beach to the lagoon to form flood tide deltas on the bay side of such inlets (Kana, 1995). While there were no structures damaged during the formation of the new Fire Island inlet, that is unfortunately not always the case. During a 1992 extratropical cyclone (locally known as a nor’easter), overwash on the barrier island at Westhampton (just east of Fire Island) destroyed 60 homes.
