NJAFM's 7th Annual Conference: “Embracing Sustainability”

The Palace at Somerset Park
Somerset, NJ
Throughout New Jersey, numerous government and public agencies have implemented policies and programs to highlight the importance of “Embracing Sustainability” to preserve resources, mitigate adverse impacts of natural hazards, and create safe communities. Moving into the next decade, this focus on sustainability will continue to influence regulations and policies at the Federal, State and Local level, and will shape development patterns along our waterways and floodplains for years to come. Since flooding is New Jersey's #1 natural disaster concern, it is imperative that we adopt sustainability concepts in managing our water resources, wetlands and floodplains. The NewJersey Association for Floodplain Management (NJAFM) was  established to promote sound floodplain management and to ensure productive dialog between private citizens and public officials to mitigate flood hazards and minimize flood risk to people and property throughout New Jersey.

The NJAFM 7th Annual Conference, cosponsored this year by the NJ Section of the American Water Resources Association (AWRA), provides a unique opportunity to further this mission and to facilitate integration of sustainability concepts into floodplain management. The conference includes plenary sessions, concurrent technical presentations, expanded exhibitors, and networking opportunities. Continuing Education Credits (CECs) will be offered for Municipal Construction and Code Officials, Professional Engineers, Professional Planners, Professional Land Surveyors, Certified Public Works Managers, and Certified Floodplain Managers. Opportunities for exhibitors and sponsors available.  For more information, contact Craig Wenger, NJAFM Secretary at 609-807-9674. To register or to access conference information and exhibitor/sponsorship information, go to: http://njafm.wildapricot.org

We will offer a round-the-clock, round-the-globe snapshot of the climate crisis in real time. The deniers may have millions of dollars to spend, but we have a powerful advantage. We have reality.

Rutgers: Soils & Site Evaluation For Septic Disposal Systems & Stormwater BMP's 
9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
New Brunswick, NJ
Thousands of septic systems and stormwater basins malfunction for the same reason: failure to understand how water moves (or doesn’t move!) through soil. You cannot hope to design and build these structures without a down-and-dirty understanding of these soils. That’s what this hands-on course is all about.
Every day, you will spend equal time moving between lectures in the classroom to soil pits in the field, evaluating soils using your eyes, hands, and nose. You will observe, record and evaluate the site-specific soil characteristics required to write and support a complete soil log, as well as evaluate the soil and landscape data to determine design input. Most importantly, you will develop the necessary tools to determine whether a site is right – legally and practically -- for a septic system or stormwater runoff Best Management Practices (BMPs) facility. Be prepared to leave with mud on your boots!

Environmental Forensics
9:00am - 4:30pm
$255
Environmental forensics is a multidisciplinary field with the goal of understanding how and when contamination occurred as well as who is responsible for the pollution. Environmental forensics investigations may involve identifying and apportioning responsibility among multiple parties, age-dating releases and/or determining exactly how a release occurred with reference to insurance or other contractual issues. Determining the date when problems first began is important because it allows attorneys and courts to determine who is responsible for the cleanup, insurance companies to determine whether or not an environmental claim occurred during their policy periods and government officials to determine who is responsible for recouping expended government funds.

Introduction to Wetland Identification

Virtually all activities conducted in and around wetlands are regulated – from excavating underground storage tanks to soil compaction for paving a driveway or patio to pruning of overgrown vegetation – and violators are subject to hefty penalties and fines from the NJ-DEP. Knowing if a wetland is on your property or a site on which you work is incredibly important! But how do you determine if a wetland is present?  Why not educate yourself? Take our class to get the basic tools you need to identify a wetland’s presence. Once you make a determination, you will know if you need to go further and hire an environmental professional to evaluate the site and assist you with the permit process. In this one-day combination classroom and field course, a nationally recognized wetlands expert will review the skills you need to identify freshwater wetlands and their boundaries and introduce you to wetland plant identification and soil recognition. You will learn: Why wetlands are important, How they differ, What indicators are used for wetland identification and about the current regulations in New Jersey.
