NJ DEPARTMENT of ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
LAND USE MANAGEMENT
DIVISION OF LAND USE REGULATION

Notice of Rule Proposal
Highlands Water Protection and Planning Act Rules: Definitions, N.J.A.C. 7:38-1.4, and Septic System Density Standards, N.J.A.C. 7:28-3.4(b)

PUBLIC NOTICE
Take notice that the NJ Department of Environmental Protection is proposing amendments to the septic system density standards in the Highlands Water Protection and Planning Act Rules at N.J.A.C. 7:38-3.4(b).  Specifically, the amendments would relate the septic system density standards to the three land use capability (LUC) zones (Protection, Conservation, and Existing Community) established by the Highlands Water Protection and Planning Council in the Highlands Regional Master Plan and reflect the results of a recent analysis conducted by the USGS of a significantly expanded ground water nitrate data set for the Highlands region.

The proposal is scheduled to be published in the New Jersey Register dated May 2, 2016.  A copy of the proposal is available from: the DEP website, www.nj.gov/dep/rules/proposals/20160502a.pdf; and the LexisNexis free public access to the New Jersey Register, www.lexisnexis.com/njoal.

A public hearing concerning the proposal is scheduled as follows:

Wednesday, June 1, 2016 at 6:00 P.M.
NJ Highlands Council Office
100 North Road
Chester, New Jersey
