Watershed Management and Project Funding

At the 11/16 NJ COLA meeting, a joint presentation was made by Chris Mikolajczyk, CLM, Princeton Hydro and Keri Green, NJ Highlands Council addressing watershed management and project funding.  The Borough of Ringwood in Passaic County was the first to initiate a regional approach through a public-private partnership to focus on a Watershed-based assessment of Ringwood's lakes. Both presentations are available by going to Lake Management Resources/Watershead Management on this site.

A Pending Crisis for Lake Associations

UPDATE on the proposed changes to the Planned Real Estate Development Full Disclosure Act (“PREDFDA”): In August, Governor Murphy conditionally vetoed the 2019 PREDFDA amendments, concerned it would negatively impact a lake association’s ability to manage its property and comply with dam safety and water quality regulations. 

The Senate passed the changes made by the Governor, but the Assembly has not yet scheduled it for a vote. Access these documents by clicking on these links to the Governor’s comments, and the new proposed language.
