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!
