While North Wildwood looks to recoup $21 million in beach replenishment costs from the state as part of ongoing litigation, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection has fined the city for work it has already done over the years, officials confirmed Thursday.

The $12.8 million in fines stem from past unauthorized beach replenishment work, pier renovations, construction of a restaurant and bar, building bathrooms allegedly outside of the designated sewer service area, as well as other boardwalk development, court documents provided by the DEP show.
