During a 1992 extratropical cyclone (locally known as a nor’easter), overwash on the barrier island at Westhampton (just east of Fire Island) destroyed 60 homes. The resulting breach was soon filled and new homes were built on the very spot. , 2002). 16 Oblique low‐altitude airphoto looking westward at Mantoloking, New Jersey, in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, 2012. The houses in the foreground face the Atlantic Ocean. The streets between the rows of houses are flooded and littered with debris.

These include ammoniacal nitrogen, heavy metals and metalloids (such as As, Cd, Cr, Co, Cu, Hg, Ni, Pb, Zn), and persistent organic compounds (including aromatic hydrocarbons, phenols, halogenated compounds, pesticides). The collected leachate must be chemically and physically treated to stabilize these con­ taminants, employing methods including coagulation– flocculation; chemical precipitation; ammonium stripping; micro‐, ultra‐, and nanofiltration; activated carbon absorption; and ion exchange.

Sediments also migrate westward through the lagoon, entering via Moriches Inlet and exiting at Fire Island Inlet. There they accumulate as an ebb tidal delta, left behind by the falling tide just seaward of the inlet. , 2013). Fire Island constitutes part of the Gateway National Seashore, which entails a complex framework of land management issues, as the island has wilderness areas; fed­ eral, state, and county parkland; and private communities. While new hardening measures are forbidden, beach replen­ ishment and beach scraping (to obtain sand to enlarge protective dunes in residential zones) are ongoing.
