NJBA held an informational session on two important stormwater initiatives prior to the NJBA Board Meeting on September 28th. John Showler, State Erosion Control Engineer, NJDA, demonstrated a new detention basin database developed by the NJDA, Rutgers University and the NJ Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP). The database is accessible to the public by visiting http://hydro.rutgers.edu/.

In part two of the program, Jeromie Lange, NJBA Master Sponsor Maser Consulting, discussed the statewide stormwater basin assessment conducted by NJDEP, NJDA and NJBA member engineering firms. Mr. Lange reviewed the preliminary findings and potential implications for stormwater basin design. Thank you to the NJBA member firms who volunteered their time to participate in this unique collaborative effort: NJBA Master Sponsor Bowman Consulting, NJBA Master Sponsor Maser Consulting, Bohler Engineering, Dewberry, Dynamic Engineering, E2PM (E2 Project Management), Greenman-Pedersen, Inc., Marathon Engineering, and T&M Associates.
