JUSTIFICATION: The project will achieve tangible benefits by providing: (1) Improved and safer navigation through Corson Inlet; ($429,000). (2) Preservation of beaches with consequent increased usage ($1,151,000) and reduction in storm damages ($457,000) and (3) Increased fishing opportunities ($20,000). Total average annual benefits are estimated at $2,057,000.

NON-FEDERAL COSTS: The current cost to local interests for complying with requirements of local cooperation is estimated at $6,710,000, representing a cash contribution of 52% of the first construction cost. The costs of operation and maintenance of the general navigation features of small boats projects authorized between 1 January 1970 and 31 December 1970 shall be borne by the United States in accordance with Section 103 of PL 91-611 dated 31 December 1970.

COMPARISON OF FEDERAL COST ESTIMATE: The current Federal cost estimate of $6,190,000 is the same as that last presented to Congress in FY 1974.

BENEFIT TO COST RATIO:

The benefit to cost ratio last presented to Congress (FY 1974) was 1.2. The current benefit
to cost ratio is 1.4. The benefit to cost ratio is based on the project functioning independently.
STATUS OF ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT:

The coordinated Environmental Impact Statement was filed with CEQ November 1970.
OTHER INFORMATION: The survey report, "Study of the New Jersey Coastal Inlets and Beaches Interim Report on Great Egg
Harbor Inlet to Stone Harbor," includes proposed work between the two points cited in the title of the report and is
subdivided into three independent areas, which are Great Egg Harbor Inlet and Peck Beach, Corson Inlet and Ludlam Beach,
and Townsend Inlet and Seven Mile Beach. The data presented herein is for Corson Inlet and Ludlam Beach only. Funds
to initiate planning were appropriated in FY 1974.

COMPARISON OF FEDERAL COST ESTIMATE: The current Federal cost estimate of $7,268,000 is an increase of $768,000 over the latest estimate ($6,500,000) submitted to Congress. The increase is due to price level increase ($690,000); addition of model studies ($60,000); and addition of office rental charges by GSA ($18,000).

BENEFIT TO COST RATIO: The benefit to cost ratio last presented to Congress was 2.7. The current benefit to cost ratio is 2.7. The benefit to cost ratio is based on the project functioning independently.
