DRBC Staff Moderate and Present at the 100th NJWEA Conference

The New Jersey Water Environment Association (NJWEA) held its 100th Annual Conference from May 10-14, 2015 at Bally's Atlantic City, N.J. NJWEA is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and improving New Jersey's waters through education, training, and information sharing on the latest technologies and scientific advancements. Its members include engineers, operators, students, and other professionals in the water and wastewater fields.

Commission staff support NJWEA and its annual conference in various ways. Project Review Section staff Shane McAleer and Steve Walsh have attended NJWEA's annual conferences since 2009 and have represented DRBC at its informational booth since 2011. DRBC Water Resources Management Branch Manager Bill Muszynski, a long-time member of NJWEA, and Amy Shallcross, DRBC Operations Section Supervisor, moderate the conference's watershed management session each year. 

This year, DRBC Executive Director Steve Tambini also attended part of the conference. Bill and Amy were moderators of the session entitled Watersheds: Projects and Management Programs. DRBC Project Review Section Supervisor David Kovach presented on DRBC's One Process One Permit (OPOP) Program (pdf 339 KB) during that session. The draft rule to provide for the OPOP Program is currently available for comment. Click here to learn more.

DRBC staff who attended enjoyed the conference's many educational and networking opportunities and felt that their participation was worthwhile.
