A stormwater management project about to be undertaken by Ocean County will cover separate aspects in three towns, including Brick.

The Board of Chosen Freeholders are expected to approve a contract to begin the $339,325 project at their meeting next week. Work will be completed in Brick, Point Pleasant Beach and Bay Head.

In Brick, work will include extending an outflow pipe in Beaver Dam Creek further out into the creek itself and installing backflow devices to help reduce flooding. The work will take place near 474 Princeton Avenue, near the intersection of Princeton and Midstreams Road.

The other aspects of the project will include the installation of a water treatment device at Little Silver Lake in Point Pleasant Beach in order to improve water quality in the lake, which runs beside Arnold Avenue near the municipal parking lot.

The contract is set to be awarded to OTS of New Jersey, a company based in Jackson.
