Abstract: The Division of Water Resources of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, the Hunterdon Soil Conservation District, the United States Department of Agriculture's Soil Conservation Service (SCS), and Hunterdon County are cooperating in this study. This paper describes the technical aspects of the first two objectives: (1) To analyze in detail various methods of storm water management. This will provide a field test of the state's new regulations for storm water management and a cost-efficiency analysis to show the relative effectiveness of the different methods which include nonstructural methods, onsite detention, and offsite detention. (2) To carry out the technical studies in an actual watershed setting and arrive at a recommended storm water management plan. This plan will cover various possible future conditions for this watershed. It will also serve as an example of the planning process for other watersheds in the state.
