This bill would establish a stormwater management system demonstration project in Ocean County. This bill would permit Ocean County, or the Ocean County Utilities Authority, to establish, provide and maintain a stormwater utility for the purpose of creating a stormwater management system to manage the stormwater runoff of the county. The bill would authorize Ocean County, or the Ocean County Utilities Authority, to finance the creation, operation, and maintenance of the stormwater utility system through the imposition of user fees and the issuance of bonds. The bill would also require the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to create a stormwater utility guidance manual to provide guidance to counties and authorities seeking to establish stormwater management systems. The rate structure guidance provided in the stormwater utility guidance manual would define the unit by which stormwater runoff contributions are calculated and would be directly related to the specific costs of the stormwater management system. The stormwater utility guidance manual, or any revisions thereto, would be adopted after appropriate notice and opportunity for public comment but would not be subject to the notice and publication requirements of the "Administrative Procedure Act." The bill would limit the use of the revenue from the portion of the fees or other charges transferred to the Department of Environmental Protection to fund only those activities related to stormwater utilities and stormwater management systems authorized pursuant to section 4 of the bill.
