UNION COUNTY – The Mayors’ Council On Rahway River Watershed Flood Control has announced a stormwater management conference to be held next week in Cranford.
Cranford Mayor David Robinson, Millburn Mayor Sandra Haimoff and Springfield Mayor Ziad Andrew Shehady will host the meeting, on Wednesday, Feb. 15 at 7:30 p.m. at the Cranford Community Center at 200 Walnut Avenue.
Conference attendees will discuss ways each of the Rahway River communities can revise their ordinances and best practices to improve stormwater management. The objective of the meeting is to gather environmental organizations, planning and zoning board members, engineers and elected officials to develop some consensus on changes to current practices.
Millburn Mayor Sandra Haimoff said, “It is important for towns to implement an ordinance which goes beyond the state mandated Storm Water Ordinance. Storm water management rules that can mitigate some of the damages wrought by the Rahway River, such as we saw during Hurricane Irene, should be in place in all communities along the Rahway River.”
