Description

Managing stormwater runoff is becoming more complex every day. In order to comply with New Jersey's highly comprehensive stormwater management rules (or the rules established in any other state), all types of professionals from engineers to project reviewers, developers and environmental planners need to acquire broader knowledge and new skills.

This three-day course, led by Joseph Skupien (an expert with more than 25 years of NJ stormwater experience), is designed to address these needs by presenting the most pertinent and up-to-date information on the scientific and regulatory aspects of stormwater management.

Specific topics covered in this stormwater management course include:

  • An overview of New Jersey's Stormwater Management Rules, including groundwater recharge and stormwater quality requirements;
  • The evaluation, selection and design of appropriate stormwater management practices and facilities;
  • The design of groundwater recharge facilities using the NJDEP's Groundwater Recharge Spreadsheet;
  • Methodologies to address the NJDEP's stormwater quality requirements;
  • Computation of runoff volumes, rates, and hydrography using National Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) methodologies, including TR-55;
  • How to incorporate maintenance, safety, and aesthetic considerations into facility design;
  • The design and evaluation of nonstructural stormwater measures using New Jersey's Nonstructural Points System (NSPS).

Although there is an emphasis on NJ's stormwater rules -- some of the most comprehensive in the nation -- attendees from any state will learn to better manage stormwater in their hometown. This stormwater management training will help you no matter where you live and work!

"Excellent refresher for anyone in the field. Good updates on rule requirements."

"[After taking this course,] I think that my approach to stormwater design will be much more organized. I always felt a little disoriented in what to tackle first. Now I will start with the nonstructural options and progress forward."

"Very good overview of stormwater in its entirety, with a precise focus on the important practical applications."

"Very useful for land development engineering."

"[The most useful aspect of the program was] the breakdown of how to bring together all the information needed to do a stormwater analysis."
