Stormwater is an issue of critical concern to local environments and human safety at the Jersey Shore. Managing it responsibly can be complicated and complex— in an effort to bring greater awareness to this issue, Save Barnegat Bay is teaming up with stormwater experts Chris Obropta and Steve Souza to teach about the ins and outs of municipal stormwater management.
Save Barnegat Bay is hosting three workshops as part of our Non-Point Education for Municipal Officials (NEMO) stormwater initiative, which focus on three themes related to stormwater and its management. Chris and Steve’s first presentation was a primer on stormwater and green infrastructure in NJ. The second will explore Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Compliance and state stormwater regulations. Finally, this part of the series will conclude with a discussion on retrofitting storm basins.
