MANTOLOKING - About 220,000 cubic yards of sand that was washed into the waterway during Sandy is being removed from the Barnegat Bay and placed back onto the beach.

The dredging project continued near the Mantoloking Bridge Wednesday.

Crews have already started putting some of the sand back onto the beach to help build up the temporary dunes.

Authorities say environmental testing on the sand was done first. The project is expected to be complete in about one month.
