STAFFORD TOWNSHIP - Much of the Ocean County marshlands are still full of debris eight months after Sandy.

In Stafford Township, parts of homes, docks and even hot tubs still sit in the shallow water.

Neither residents nor the township are allowed to remove the debris because it is on federal property.

The manager of the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge says it just recently received the federal funding to proceed with debris removal. It is now in the planning phase and hopes to begin work mid-summer.
