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;
