Ch. 500, Stormwater Management
Ch. 502, Direct Watersheds of Waterbodies Most at Risk from New Development and Sensitive or Threatened Regions or Watersheds
ADOPTED RULE NUMBER: 97-406
CONCISE SUMMARY: P.L. 1995 ch. 704 enacted a new Stormwater Management Law, and required the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to conduct rulemaking (1) to adopt stormwater quantity and quality standards for projects requiring stormwater permits under the law, and (2) to list "bodies of water most at risk from new development" and "sensitive or threatened regions or watersheds". Chapters 500 and 502 are intended to fulfill those requirements, to provide necessary definitions and administrative provisions, and to describe how the stormwater standards apply to developments requiring a permit under the Site Location of Development Law (Site Law). The rules are "major substantive". They were provisionally adopted by the Board of Environmental Protection (BEP) on February 1, 1997. The Legislature authorized final adoption through two "resolves", PL 1997, chapters 47 and 67, effective September 19, 1997. The rules were reposted in order to receive public comment on (b) minor changes required by the Legislature in PL 1997, ch. 67, and (b) minor technical corrections and clarifications proposed by the department. The rules were adopted (final adoption) by the BEP on November 12,1997.
