Permit-by-rule (PBR) 16 - placement of land-based
upwellers and raceways for aquaculture activities

The PBR 16 authorizes the placement of land-based upwellers and raceways, including intakes and discharges, for aquaculture activities, provided:

  • The structures are located on the upland portion of a lot with a legally existing, functioning bulkhead;
  • No grading, excavation, filling, or placement of a structure(s) is undertaken on a beach, dune, or wetland; and
  • The discharge from the aquaculture activities is to a water body and not directly into a wetland.

Full details are provided at N.J.A.C.7:7-4.16.

If your project does not meet the requirements of the PBR 1, it may qualify for a General Permit or an Individual Permit.  Additional information on these permit types can be found on the Coastal Permitting page.
