Oakwood Creek outfall

December 15th, 2014

This walled channel at the mouth of Oakwood Creek, along with a tide gate and the wooden seawall visible in the background at left (bird's-eye view), once protected Oakwood Beach from seawater flooding. A 1992 nor'easter caused substantial damage to the already aging seawall, leaving the low-lying neighborhood vulnerable to flooding and leading the Army Corps of Engineers to construct the newer levee and tide gate we saw two posts ago.
