Meet the Funders & Technical Resources : Forging Links between CSO Permits and Redevelopment Goals

On Friday December 4th DEP and the Office of Planning Advocacy hosted a CSO Workshop titled “Meet the Funders & Technical Resources: Forging Links between CSO Permits and Redevelopment Goals.” This meeting focused on the funding and technical assistance opportunities for CSO communities and how redevelopment can be tied to reducing CSOs in your city. Addressing CSOs is an opportunity to advance multiple goals of your municipality, such as redevelopment, investing in water infrastructure, reducing localized flooding, and increasing green space. State and Federal partners discussed what the CSO permit requires and how it can support important goals of your City, and the funding and technical assistance available to do so. This workshop was tailored to those that work in and with CSOs municipalities (and counties) on topics such as redevelopment, planning, open space, brownfield reuse, green infrastructure, engineering, stormwater and wastewater.

A “Guide to the Agencies” was developed for this meeting, which is designed to briefly outline the key programs and resources that state and federal entities offer related to CSO and redevelopment.

The New Jersey Environmental Infrastructure Financing Program (NJEIFP) Update

In September 2015, the NJEIFP held a series of seminars focusing on programmatic updates and the Proposed Priority System, Intended Use Plan, and Project Priority List for Federal Fiscal Year 2016, issued by the Department on August 28, 2015. New Jersey has expanded the NJEIFP to fund the development and implementation of Long Term Control Plans. Applications for LTCP planning and design loans have no due date. Planning and Design loans will be 100% interest free for terms of up to 10 years with the expectation that the studies will result in a capital improvement project for the LTCP.  Construction projects sponsored by permittees or membership municipalities in the CSO sewershed that reduce or eliminate excessive infiltration/inflow or extraneous flow would qualify for DEP interest-free financing for 100% of the allowable project cost for a loan term of up to 30 years. Up to $3M in principal forgiveness ($1M per sponsor) will be awarded to CSO abatement projects utilizing green infrastructure.


The seminars focused on financing available for CSO Permittees, detailed above, as well as the following:

  • New Loan Programs and Legislative Changes;
  • New Project Prioritization and Principal Forgiveness;
  • Operational Changes; and,
  • New Federal Requirements

Discharge Monitoring Report (DMR) Training Videos

Below is a three part video training series that is specifically designed to assist CSO permittees in understanding, completing and submitting their CSO Discharge Monitoring Reports (DMRs). The introduction provides a brief overview of the training series. In Part I, a general overview of the Monitoring Report Forms required for CSO reporting (i.e. DMRs) will be provided. This will include a discussion on the endorsement and submission requirements associated with CSO DMRs, as well as a discussion on electronic submission of the reports. In Part II of the training series, a DMR and its associated submittal form will be explored in more detail. In addition, parameter-by-parameter, an example DMR will be completed using a series of hypothetical examples.
