a. Within six months after enactment of this act, the Department of Environmental
Protection shall develop standards for the inventory and mapping of stormwater sewers
and sanitary sewage lines and, within that period, shall provide these standards to
any municipality required to adopt a map pursuant to subsection b. of this section.
b. Within 18 months after enactment of this act, all municipalities with stormwater
systems discharging into the salt waters of Monmouth, Ocean, Atlantic and Cape May
counties shall adopt a stormwater sewer/sanitary sewage map in accordance with the
provisions of this act. The map shall locate, list and number all stormwater sewer and sanitary sewage lines
within the geographical boundaries of a municipality, which are part of any stormwater
system that discharges into surface waters. The map shall also identify all cross-connections between stormwater and sanitary
sewage systems, and indicate whether the cross-connections have received a permit
from the Department of Environmental Protection.
The governing body of any municipality required to adopt a map pursuant to this section
may contract for the county health department or other county health agency to prepare
the map or to monitor the stormwater sewer outfalls in accordance with section 4 of
this act. 1
As used in this act, “salt water” means surface saline waters as defined by the Department
