Managing stormwater runoff is becoming more complex every day. In order to comply with New Jersey's highly comprehensive stormwater management rules, all types of professionals from engineers to project reviewers, developers and environmental planners need to acquire broader knowledge and new skills. Specific topics covered in this course will 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 NRCS methodologies (including TR-55);
  • How to incorporate maintenance, safety, and aesthetic considerations into facility design and,
  • The design and evaluation of nonstructural stormwater measures using New Jersey's Non-structural Points System (NSPS).
