Does my town have the same requirements as the new NJDEP rules?
In addition to incorporating NJDEP stormwater rule standards and requirements into local ordinances, municipalities have the option to impose higher standards on non-residential projects than those set forth in N.J.A.C. 7:8. For instance, some municipalities define a “major development” with a smaller area of disturbance than the NJDEP’s one-acre standard. Thus, a project that is exempt from NJDEP major development regulations may still be required to provide stormwater management. Check your local ordinances early in the design process in order to ensure compliance.
