AN ORDINANCE OF SPRING LAKE HEIGHTS BOROUGH, COUNTY OF
MONMOUTH, STATE OF NEW JERSEY ENACTING CHAPTER 22-530
"STORMWATER CONTROL"," TO THE BOROUGH OF SPRING LAKE
HEIGHTS LAND USE REGULATIONS


§22-530 Scope and Purpose

  1. Policy Statement

It is hereby determined that the waterways within the Borough of Spring Lake Heights are at times subjected to flooding, that such flooding is a danger to the lives and property of the public; that such flooding is also a danger to the natural resources of Spring Lake Heights Borough, the County of Monmouth, and the State of New Jersey; that development tends to accentuate flooding by increasing storm water runoff, due to alteration of the hydrologic response of the watershed in changing from the undeveloped to the developed condition; that such increased flooding produced by the development of real property contributes increased quantities of waterborne pollutants, and tends to increase channel erosion; that such increased flooding, increased erosion, and increased pollution constitutes deterioration of the water resources of the Borough of Spring Lake Heights, the County and the State; and that such increased flooding, increased erosion and increased pollution can be controlled to some extent by the regulation of storm water runoff from such development.

It is therefore determined that it is in the public interest to regulate the development of real property and to establish standards to regulate the additional discharge of storm water runoff from such developments as provided in this Chapter. Flood control, groundwater recharge, and pollutant reduction through nonstructural or low impact techniques shall be explored before relying on structural Best Management Practices (BMP's). Structural BMPs should be integrated with nonstructural stormwater management strategies and proper maintenance plans. Nonstructural strategies include both environmentally sensitive site design and source controls that prevent pollutants from being placed on the site or from being exposed to stormwater. Source control plans should be developed based upon physical site conditions and the origin, nature, and the anticipated quantity or amount of potential pollutants. Multiple stormwater management BMPs may be necessary to achieve the established performance standards for water quality, quantity, and groundwater recharge.

  1. Purpose

It is the purpose of this ordinance to establish minimum stormwater management requirements and controls for "major development," as defined in section §22-530.1.

  1. Applicability

1. This ordinance shall be applicable to all site plans and subdivisions for the following major developments that require preliminary or final site plan or subdivision review:

a. Non-residential major developments; and

b. Aspects of residential major developments that are not pre-empted by the Residential Site Improvement Standards at N.J.A.C. 5:21.

2. This ordinance shall also be applicable to all major developments undertaken by the Borough of Spring Lake Heights.

D. Compatibility with Other Permit and Ordinance Requirements

Development approvals issued for subdivisions and site plans pursuant to this ordinance are to be considered an integral part of development approvals under the subdivision and site plan review process and do not relieve the applicant of the responsibility to secure required permits or approvals for activities regulated by any other applicable code, rule, act, or ordinance. In their interpretation and application, the provisions of this ordinance shall be held to be the minimum requirements for the promotion of the public health, safety, and general welfare. This ordinance is not intended to interfere with, abrogate, or annul any other ordinances, rule or regulation, statute, or other provision of law except that, where any provision of this ordinance imposes restrictions different from those imposed by any other ordinance, rule or regulation, or other provision of law, the more restrictive provisions or higher standards shall control.

§22-530.2: General Standards

A. Design and Performance Standards for Stormwater Management Measures

1 Stormwater management measures for major development shall be developed to meet the erosion control, groundwater recharge, stormwater runoff quantity, and stormwater runoff quality standards in §22-530.3. To the maximum extent practicable, these standards shall be met by incorporating nonstructural stormwater management strategies into the design. If these strategies alone are not sufficient to meet these standards, structural stormwater management measures necessary to meet these standards shall be incorporated into the design.

  1. The standards in this ordinance apply only to new major development and are intended to minimize the impact of stormwater runoff on water quality and water quantity in receiving water bodies and maintain groundwater recharge. The standards do not apply to new major development to the extent that alternative design and performance standards are applicable under a regional stormwater management plan or Water Quality Management Plan adopted in accordance with Department rules.

  2. For site improvements regulated under the Residential Site Improvement Standards (RSIS) at N.J.A.C. 5:21, the RSIS shall apply in addition to this Section except to the extent the RSIS are superseded by this Section or alternative standards applicable under a regional stormwater management plan or Water Quality Management Plan adopted in accordance with the rules of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.
