NOTE: The July 19, 2006 Model Stormwater Control Ordinance (Section III.A.1.) for Pinelands Area Municipalities includes language that indicates alternative calculations methods to the NRCS methodology may be utilized to calculate runoff rates and volumes. This language is consistent with the Pinelands Comprehensive Management Plan at N.J.A.C. 7:50-6.84(a)6.i(1).

Both the CMP and the Model Ordinance require the use of the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Runoff Equation, Runoff Curve Numbers, and Dimensionless Unit Hydrograph, as described in the NRCS National Engineering handbook Part 630 – Hydrology and Technical Release 55 – Urban Hydrology for Small Watersheds. The reference to the use of alternative methods is provided to recognize that the adoption of a regional stormwater management plan may result in alternative computational methods, and may supersede this standard if adopted. However, unless a regional stormwater management plan has been adopted by the NJDEP, certified by the Pinelands Commissin, and specifically revises the computational methods, alternative computational methods may not be utilized to comply with this requirement.
