Abstract
An inventory of estuarine site development lagoon systems along the New Jersey shore was developed for that portion of the shoreline extending from Sandy Hook to Cape May Point. Lagoon systems were identified by a visual inspection of air photo index sheets. Using enlarged contact prints, the following information was subsequently developed for each lagoon system: location, area, lagoon developed shoreline, inland penetration, total length of lagoons, remote point along lagoons, total length of roads, and number of houses. Supplementary information, including lagoon development names, dredging permit dates, data regarding the status of sanitary sewers, and the total number of lots in each lagoon system, was also obtained. The data indicate that a substantial amount of lagoon development exists along the New Jersey shore from Sandy Hook to Cape May Point. A total of 14.2 square miles of lagoon systems were identified along this shoreline, 53.8 miles of lagoon developed shoreline, 166.1 miles of lagoons, 188.0 miles of lagoon system roads, 29,824 lagoon lots, and 14,591 houses.
