Green Stormwater Infrastructure Regulatory Webinar: April 23

April 3rd, 2020

New Jersey recently changed how stormwater is managed; green infrastructure will be the method of addressing our polluted stormwater runoff going forward.  Within the next year, all of New Jersey’s municipalities will have to adopt new stormwater management ordinances.  And after adoption, all new projects will have to meet the green infrastructure stormwater management requirements.

  • What are the new rules?
  • What does a municipality have to do in order to comply with the requirements?
  • How is a planning board/zoning board review going to change?
  • What do applicants have to do in order to comply with the new requirements?

Join us on April 23, 2020, from 4-to-6 p.m. and hear from our panel of experts to learn what municipalities must do and what the new requirements will mean for design and review of projects.
