Additional Information:

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.

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!
