As a result of a $394K OEA Compatible Use Investment, the State of New Jersey and local jurisdictions: (1) completed the first viable oyster reef in 100 years next to the Navy Pier Complex to reduce storm surge damage; (2) supported a Readiness and Environmental Protection Integration (REPI) Challenge project, funded at $2M in FY19, to preserve land around drinking water reservoirs supplying the Base and half a million citizens; and, (3) shared service agreements with the Navy, improving facility support and yielding 50% cost savings for the Carrier and Expeditionary Strike Groups of the Atlantic Fleet ammunition port.
