NJDEP Adopts New Inland Flood Protection Rule

Date: August 1, 2023

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) has officially adopted a NEW Inland Flood Protection Rule, effective July 17, 2023. This rule focuses on protecting public safety and protecting New Jersey’s assets, economy, and the community from the catastrophic effects of worsening floods. Extreme weather and rainfall events are becoming more prevalent in the State of New Jersey and are expected to continue, which was a main contributor to the creation of this NEW Rule. Identified in this rule are areas at most significant risk for flooding and includes more defined design and construction requirements for new and reconstructed assets within these areas.
