The Inland Flood Protection rule has been adopted, effective July 17, 2023.
As New Jersey’s residents face threats from the devastating impacts of extreme rainfall events, which are expected to continue to intensify in their frequency and severity, DEP must continue to protect public safety. The Inland Flood Protection Rule would ensure that areas at most significant risk are better defined and that new and reconstructed assets in these areas are designed and constructed using the best available climate-informed precipitation data. Using the best available data is critical to protecting New Jersey’s assets, economy and, above all, our people from the catastrophic effects of worsening floods.
