Stormwater Management

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) oversees the Stormwater Management Program for the State. Municipalities and Counties are required to obtain stormwater permits. The purpose of the stormwater management program is to reduce the pollution impact of stormwater.

It is estimated that up to 60% of our existing water pollution problems are attributable to stormwater/nonpoint pollution. The Stormwater Management Program attempts to reduce stormwater/nonpoint pollutant contributions through the implementation of best management practices including public education.
