DEPARTMENT APPROVED WATERSHED-BASED IMPLEMENTATION PLANS

Beginning in State Fiscal Year (SFY) 2006, the Division of Watershed Management has prioritized Watershed-Based Plan Implementation Projects for Section 319(h) Nonpoint Source Pollution Control Grant funding. Such projects include nonpoint source abatement projects or activities that have been specifically identified as integral components of a Department approved watershed-based plan. For the purpose of implementing these projects with 319(h) funds, the Division defines watershed-based plans as plans that:

  • are regional/areawide in scope (i.e. not a study of one location);
  • detail specific projects or management measures to be implemented in order to achieve the goals of the plan; and
  • set forth a prioritization of the projects or managment measures identified in the plan.

Plans initiated after June 30, 2007 must include the nine minimum components of a watershed plan set forth in the Environmental Protection Agency's "Handbook for Developing Watershed Plans to Restore and Protect Our Waters" (USEPA, 2005) in order to be considered for implementation funds through 319(h). These minimum components are also outlined in the New Jersey "Request for Proposals: SFY 2007 Section 319(h) Grants for Nonpoint Source Pollution Control." Plans initiated prior to June 30, 2007 must meet the definition of watershed-based plan noted above, but are not required to possess the nine minimimum components in order to receive implementation funds, unless the plans were funded under 319(h) grants in which said minimum components are a requirement of the executed contracts.

A listing of Department approved plans is included below. This list is not all-inclusive, and will be updated on a regular basis.
