STENAPA has proposed to study and research into the restoration of the beach at Oranje Bay. STENAPA, together with the enthusiastic support of the Island Government and the financial backing of AMFO is well onthe way to making this farsighted concept a reality. On Sept. 24th 2004 Statia?s Lt.Governor Mr. Hyden Gittens, AMFO Project Evaluator Mr Robert Budike and STENAPA Manager Nicole Esteban signed the contract for phase 1 , or design phase, of a three phase development programme. The proposed restoration site lies between the Blue Pier and Smoke Alley. AMFO will provide approximately NAf 60.000 for the survey and design of the beach restoration project. Dr. Harris, Ph.D., P.E of the Coral Reef Foundation and Associate Professor at the Florida Institute of Technology is the consultant for the OranjeBay Beach Project. UPDATE: March 6, 2006, "The Government has allotted a fund to construct one breakwater (in front of the hotels) in line with the existing engineering design prepared by Dr. Lee Harris early last year."
