TRENTON, NJ - Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Bradley M. Campbell announced two proposed packages of regulations to reduce pollution levels in New Jersey's water resources caused by stormwater runoff and to help replenish vital ground water supplies throughout the state. The first set of proposals announced would update the state's Stormwater Management Rules. The rules stress new performance standards for ground water recharge, including both water quality and quantity. The second set of stormwater control proposals would require municipalities to develop control plans for stormwater runoff resulting from both existing and new development. These rules address U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's federally-mandated requirements for Phase II stormwater rules. All 50 states are in the process of implementing these new permitting and stormwater management programs.
