The Army Corps established this temporary storage site, or TSS, at West 15th Street on Coney Island. Since Nov. 24, this site has received over 230 trucks carrying an estimated 4,600 cubic yards of sand. Eventually, most of the sand will be returned to area beaches by the New York City's Department of Environmental Protection, but not before it is inspected for public safety.
