Intended for: Municipalities & Public Works Departments
A new state rule requires that new, major construction projects address stormwater runoff with green infrastructure such as rain gardens and bioswales. Towns and cities have until March 2021 to update their ordinances to be in step with the rule issued by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP). Due to this new rule, the Watershed is offering its first training for public works and other municipal officials so they know how to maintain their investment. The goal of this webinar is to provide information on the Watershed’s model ordinance, a description of each type of stormwater system, seasonal maintenance, potential issues, and record-keeping for MS4 permit reporting.
Kory Kreiseder, The Watershed Institute’s Stormwater Specialist, will discuss:
