Date & Time

Last Held: July 26-27, 2016
9:00am - 4:30pm (Check in time on Day 1: 8:30am)

Next offering TBD.


NJDEP implements the Stormwater Management rules through the Municipal, Highway, and Public Complex NJPDES Stormwater General Permits and through the review of Land Use Regulation permits (Flood Hazard, Freshwater Wetlands, CAFRA, Waterfront Development, Coastal Wetlands, and Highlands Water Protection and Planning). The Stormwater Management Rules contain the planning, design and performance, and safety standards for managing stormwater runoff. For both designers of land use proposals and the public officials who review them, implementing the rules requires an understanding of both the municipal planning requirements and the technical standards. In this two-day seminar, learn both of these aspects of the rule, as well as hear updates and an overview of NJ's Stormwater Management Program.

Feedback from class attendee:
"Exceeded expectations, kept the class focused, interesting, informative and entertaining."
