Stormwater Utilities Conference – Sept. 26

Conference Organized by:

The Watershed Institute

Are stormwater utilities coming to New Jersey?  If so what are they?  How do you create one and what do you do with them once you have it?

On June 21, 2018,  the New Jersey Senate approved legislation authorizing the creation of Stormwater Utilities. This fall, the Assembly will consider the bill and, if approved, will send it to the governor for his signature. New Jersey would then become the 42nd state in the nation to permit this important tool for addressing flooding and polluted runoff.  But what does this all mean?

Join us at The Watershed Insitute with NJSpotlight for a free Stormwater Utility Conference on September 26, 2018,  to learn the nuts-and-bolts.  Gain insights from the experts that run these important stormwater management tools and from the consultants that help communities set them up.
