Statement on Enactment of Stormwater Utilities Law

TRENTON, March 18, 2019 — New Jersey Future Managing Director of Policy and Water Chris Sturm released the following statement on Governor Murphy’s signing of A2694/S1073:

“Governor Murphy’s signing of the Flood Defense Act to give municipalities the option to establish stormwater utilities is a monumental step toward cleaner, healthier communities. Towns and cities across the state struggle to manage flooding from stormwater and maintain clean waterways, but now they will have another tool to combat these issues. New Jersey Future looks forward to working with local governments interested in implementing stormwater utilities.”
