Flood Defense New Jersey is a coalition of state and local nonprofit organizations working to protect our communities from damaging floods and harmful stormwater pollution.
Unfortunately, frequent flooding is polluting our waters, causing millions of dollars of damage, snarling traffic, threatening drinking water and even endangering lives in New Jersey. Our counties, cities and towns need the support and resources to establish stormwater programs to address this growing threat. We are working across the state to help local communities set up flood defense programs to control flooding and reduce pollution. Specifically, stormwater utilities are an equitable way to give communities tools needed to address stormwater management. By building proven on-the-ground projects that protect against flooding, capture polluted runoff and repair failing infrastructure, we can help New Jersey communities become cleaner, greener and safer.
