Date & Time

NOTE: A primary component of the Flood Hazard Area Certificate Program series is the discussion of NJDEP's proposal to amend the Flood Hazard Area Control Act Rules. Recently, the NJ Legislature passed a resolution in opposition to NJDEP's proposal to amend these rules, thus we are temporarily postponing our Flood Hazard classes until this issue has been resolved.
